Minor upstream update.  Converted to arch-any package.

Upstream changelog:

* Bugs introduced by 1.11:

  - The `parallel-tests' test driver works around a GNU make 3.80 bug with
    trailing white space in the test list (`TESTS = foo $(EMPTY)').

* Long standing bugs:

  - On Darwin 9, `pythondir' and `pyexecdir' pointed below `/Library/Python'
    even if the `--prefix' argument pointed outside of a system directory.
    AM_PATH_PYTHON has been fixed to ignore the value returned from python's
    `get_python_lib' function if it points outside the configured prefix,
    unless the `--prefix' argument was either `/usr' or below `/System'.

  - The testsuite does not try to change the mode of `ltmain.sh' files from
    a Libtool installation (symlinked to test directories) any more.

  - AM_PROG_GCJ uses AC_CHECK_TOOLS to look for `gcj' now, so that prefixed
    tools are preferred in a cross-compile setup.

  - The distribution is tarred up with mode 755 now by the `dist*' targets.
    This fixes a race condition where untrusted users could modify files
    in the $(PACKAGE)-$(VERSION) distdir before packing if the toplevel
    build directory was world-searchable.  This is CVE-2009-4029.

Build x86_64, tested on i686.
