Update Information:

This update addresses CVE-2011-1944 (heap-based buffer overflow by adding a new namespace node to an existing nodeset or merging nodesets). It is described in detail at http://scarybeastsecurity.blogspot.com/2011/05/libxml-vulnerability-and-interesting.html

It also fixes the broken xpath implementation, which was crashing in the regression test suite on 32-bit architectures and failing some of the tests on all architectures.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Fri Jun  3 2011 Paul Howarth <paul@city-fan.org> 1:1.8.17-27
- fix segfault and regressions in xpath tests
- use a patch rather than iconv to fix the ChangeLog encoding
* Thu Jun  2 2011 Paul Howarth <paul@city-fan.org> 1:1.8.17-26
- add patch for CVE-2011-1944 (#709751)
- add %check section and run regression tests (note that diffs appearing in
  the output do not cause the build to fail)
- nobody else likes macros for commands
