[Surfraw-devel] release imminent, please test

I realised it is over a year since the last surfraw release.
I've fixed all the outstanding tests, cleared my todo list
and prepared a release candidate.
Please test it!
I've just changed the build system to be (hopefully) more portable, so
anyone with access to a system with a non-gnu make (eg *bsd, solaris),
please test on that system.
I'll wait a week or two to make sure there are no problems,
Debian binary packages:
Debian source package:
Alioth has recently had its services distributed over two machines,
and they are still fixing the breakages. The elvi successfully searches
alioth, but search on alioth itself is still broken. Hopefully when
they fix it the elvi will magically start working.
netbsd searches that use google sitesearch have *just* gone down,
complaining I'm sending automated queries. If this isn't a transient
issue, I'll look into it further before release.
Victims of LulzSec, apparently. I assume they will be back soon.

* Fix more make(1) portability problems.
Either I am horribly confused or netbsd make
(or at least pmake in debian) doesn't support '$<'.
Switched to '$?'.

* scitopia, worldwidescience: fixed URLs.
* Fixed make portability problems.
We cannot portably combine single suffix rules (foo.IN->foo)
and separated dependencies so we have to explicitly specify
all the .IN rules. The solution we used for this until now was
specific to GNU make.
* Removed Makefile.include, no longer used.
* './configure --enable-opensearch' now only controls
installation of the (direct) dependencies for opensearch,
not opensearch itself, as opensearch now falls back to
using a remote reflector if opensearch-discover(1)
and opensearch-genquery(1) aren't found.
* yandex: fix test.
2011-06-14 Ian Beckwith <ianb at erislabs.net>
* musicbrainz, codesearch, rpmsearch: Fixed URLs, options and
tests. The sites have all changed significantly which means
both new options and no-longer-supported options.
Codesearch has gone all ajaxy, so I've implemented the options
via the search string, e.g. adding " package:foo".
Codesearch on both google.com and google.co.uk was acting up,
so I've pointed it at google.fr.
* Removed filesearching elvi, it now requires a 'Referer:' header
to work. There is no browser-portable way to specify a
'Refer[r]er:' header, plus we should probably take it as a hint.
* Tweaked debian packaging.
* Updated NEWS.

* w3link: fixed URLs.
2011-06-10 Ian Beckwith <ianb at erislabs.net>
* Fixed ctan.
Option -doc has been replaced by -id.
Options are no longer mutually exclusive,
you can now do (eg) ctan -d -i -n texlive.

* fixed tests: debwiki, ntrs, wayback.
