Just FYI, rafan@ has posted a latest version of patch, which will
hopefully fix the ABI compatibility issue, while retaining ache@'s fixes
to utf-8 handling. The drawback is that we will lose some inline macros
which could (presumably) give a performance penalty for heavy ctype(3)
users, but we can switch to the -CURRENT implementation in the future,
without breaking forward compatibility of this version.
Basically this means that:
With 602113, newly compiled binaries won't work for older RELENG_6 systems;
With 602114 (I think we will use this __FreeBSDversion), newly compiled
binaries can work for older RELENG_6 systems including 602113;
602113 binaries can work fine on 602114 systems.
I think this is the only possible approach that we can adopt for use
right now for RELENG_6, to fulfill the ABI compatibility guidelines
without further massive breakage.
