Release notes 

Fixes:
------

* Make seccomp sandbox allow madvise, since that's used by lbzip2.

* Make seccomp sandbox allow kill and tgkill outright, since groff
  uses kill to pass on signals to its child processes.

* Make seccomp sandbox allow sibling architectures on
  x86/x86_64/x32, since people sometimes mix and match architectures
  there for performance reasons.

* Fix version check in locale macro loading to tolerate groff
  release candidates.

* man now only changes working directory in child processes, so
  never fails due to being unable to change back to its original
  working directory.

* accessdb, apropos, and lexgrog no longer emit spurious gettext
  headers in their --help output when localised.
