**** WARNING: ABANDON HOPE, ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE ****

This is a beta release. It might not work. It might not compile. It might
make pink and blue polka-dot lizards leap forth from your computer. Your
entire house could catch fire, just because you downloaded this. So, as
you can guess, no warranty. If you're still willing to use this, put the
lizards back in your computer, and read on.

The major change to this version is the use of automake to automate the
configuration process. I'm expecting this to initially cause serious
portability problems, but should improve the ease-of-use of rblcheck for
end users in the long run. YOU MUST HAVE AUTOCONF AND AUTOMAKE INSTALLED
TO USE THIS RELEASE. Please see docs/INSTALL for building instructions.

THIS IS PUT OUT STRICTLY AS A TRIAL RELEASE, in the hopes that people will
beat on it a bit. If it works for you, please let me know what platform
you're on, so I can add it to the "supported platforms" listing. If it
doesn't work for you, please let me know what compiler errors you received
(an -exact- capture is preferred) or what behavior you found odd. If you
have a patch for your problem, even better.

Discussion of this release should be held on the rblcheck mailing list at
rblcheck-users@lists.sourceforge.net. Please see the rblcheck home page
(http://rblcheck.sourceforge.net/) for subscription information.
