Upstream bug fix release.

* Fix more cdf lossage. All the documents I have
  right now print the correct information.
* don't print \012- separators in the same magic entry 
  if it consists of multiple magic printing lines.
* Avoid file descriptor leak in compress code from
  (Daniel Novotny)
* Allow escaping of relation characters, so that we can say \^[A-Z]
  and the ^ is not eaten as a relation char.
* Fix troff and fortran to their previous glory using
  regex. This was broken since their removel from ascmagic.
* don't use strlen in strndup() (Toby Peterson)
* avoid c99 syntax.
* make the cdf code use the buffer first if available,
  and then the fd code.
* look for struct option to determine if getopt.h is usable for IRIX.
* sanitize cdf document strings
* fix OS/2 warnings.
