Modified Files:
        src/lib/libc/string: strerror.3

Log Message:
Delete the BUGS paragraph about the "missing" const qualifier for the
result type of strerror() (and strerror_l()).   While that once should
really have been present, when strerror() was invented, there was no
"const" qualifier in C to apply, and now the way the code is writtem
(really needs to be because of NLS support) the const is no longer
really appropriate.

Applications still shouldn't attempt to modify the result however.
