Electric Fence is a different kind of malloc() debugger. It uses the virtual
memory hardware of your system to detect when software overruns the boundaries
of a malloc() buffer. It will also detect any accesses of memory that has
been released by free(). Because it uses the VM hardware for detection,
Electric Fence stops your program on the first instruction that causes
a bounds violation. It's then trivial to use a debugger to display the
offending statement.

It will probably port to any ANSI/POSIX system that provides mmap(), and
mprotect(), as long as mprotect() has the capability to turn off all access
to a memory page, and mmap() can use /dev/zero or the MAP_ANONYMOUS flag
to create virtual memory pages.

Complete information on the use of Electric Fence is in the manual page
efence(3).

MASTER_SITES cleanup.

- Replace ${MASTER_SITE_FOO} with FOO.
- Merge MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR into MASTER_SITES when possible. (This means 99.9%
  of the time.)
- Remove occurrences of MASTER_SITE_LOCAL when no subdirectory was present and
  no hint of what it should be was present.
- Fix some logic.
- And generally, make things more simple and easy to understand.

While there, add magic values to the FESTIVAL, GENTOO, GIMP, GNUPG, QT and
SAMBA macros.

Also, replace some EXTRACT_SUFX occurences with USES=tar:*.

Add two more patches found in the Linux wild. Would've been
better to be downloading them, but, strangely enough, they
don't seem available in the raw source -- only in the pretty-fied
HTML :-(

Of the two remaining once, the ElectricFence-2.2.2-madvise.patch
is currently causing me unexplained crashes, and the
ElectricFence-2.2.2-pthread.patch does not seem to matter for us,
because we don't USE_SEMAPHORE:

Preserve whitespace in the argument list.  This can be tested by running
"ef.sh /bin/echo a\ \ b"; the correct output is "a  b\n", but before this
commit it would print "a b\n" instead.
