Applied, with associated manpage update.

I know.  Still looking for the "right" solution.  This doesn't nag me 
enough to float to the top of my TODO list.

The other fixes were applied back before 2.3.8.

I spent a lot of time cleaning things up so that the number of warnings 
from 'gcc -W -Wall' are minimal.  The one that has me baffled is this:

warning: type-punning to incomplete type might break strict-aliasing rules

Anyone know what exactly this means and how to fix it?  I can give a 
specific file:lineno is required.

Other than that, there are still some signed/unsigned warnings in 
lib/cyrusdb_skiplist.c and imap/index.c, but I left those along for now, 
because I was afraid to break anything.  I'll probably take another 
crack at them after 2.3.10.
