||Starting to get used to this college thing, so I have more time to
restart some work on BFBTester. Created a SourceForge project page for
mailing lists and a CVS server. This will still be the mainpage for BFBTester

||David Wheeler and one unidentified individual have located the problem
with respect to Linux. Unlike threads in FreeBSD and Solaris, in LinuxThreads
each thread is run like an individual process. BFBTester will fork() each
executable test process in one thread and waitpid()s in a different thread.
However, in the case of Linux the child processes are not owned by the
waitpid()ing thread, so we are unable to get status information. The fix
for this problem is to restructure the code so we can fork() and wait()
in the same process, however, due to lack of time I won't be able to fix
this in the near future. A fix will be made available at a later date.

||Changed to the autoconf/automake system, which allows for better detection
of OS/architecture's. Now have support for Solaris, thanks to Bill Marquette.
Changed license to the GPL.

||Added new devel snapshot, should compile on RedHat 6.2, however there
is a problem with wait()-ing on executables that make it unusable, possibly
someone knows a fix for this? (email me for details). Removed all dependency
on FreeBSD's <sys/queue.h> so should be easier to build on other platforms.
||Initial release of 2.0-BETA.
