rc.6: it was reported by birdboy that JFS is not properly unmounted unless
the order of unmounting local filesystems followed by remounting the root
filesystem read-only is inverted. I tried that, and although it did get rid
of a "/ filesystem is busy" error during shutdown, the JFS / filesystem was
still checked at boot (and found to be clean). I believe that the existing
order of unmounting non-root filesystems followed by remounting the root
filesystem as read-only is the correct order, and found that putting
another sync between these also gets rid of the error on shutdown, so I've
done that. When using JFS as the root filesystem there's still another
similar error message that's generated earlier in the boot, though. I'm
unable to find any way to shut down a JFS root partition in a way that
leaves it clean enough that fsck will not check it at boot, but it is always
found to be clean so this should only be cosmetic. I recall this behavior of
JFS going all the way back to when it was first added to the kernel. If
anyone has a better fix, I'll take a look at it, but in my opinion it's not
really anything to worry about.
This release fixes problems with argument handling, some unintended
results of the security fixes to the SAFER file access restrictions
(specifically accessing ICC profile files), and some additional
security issues over the recent 9.24 release.

Linked against libzstd.so.1. Thanks to alienBOB.
Since baldzhang has pointed out a valid use case for windres on Linux,
we are restoring the "Windows only" utilities, as none of them are
very large and there may be valid uses for the other ones as well.
Patched to build properly if windres is present on the machine.
Thanks to alienBOB.
Use the ter-114v terminus font. It has been reported that the font we were
using (ter-v14v) restricts the available console colors from 16 to 8 due
to needing an extra bit for the higher number of available glyphs (though
in testing here I couldn't see any difference). The new font covers
ISO8859-1, ISO8859-15, and Windows-1252 codepages. I'm still not sure it's
the best choice, so additional input is welcomed.
Thanks to bormant.
