new snapshot available: coreutils-8.0.24-26e8e

There are still at least two known test failures on FreeBSD 6.1,
but this snapshot should compile on many more non-GNU/Linux systems
than coreutils-8.0 did.

coreutils snapshot:
  http://meyering.net/cu/coreutils-ss.tar.gz      9.9 MB
  http://meyering.net/cu/coreutils-ss.tar.xz      4.1 MB

Here's the NEWS so far:

** Bug fixes

  chcon no longer exits immediately just because SELinux is disabled.
  Even then, chcon may still be useful.
  [bug introduced in coreutils-8.0]

  stat -f recognizes more file system types: afs, cifs, anon-inode FS,
  btrfs, cgroupfs, cramfs-wend, debugfs, futexfs, hfs, inotifyfs, minux3,
  nilfs, securityfs, selinux, xenfs

** New features

  md5sum --check now also accepts openssl-style checksums.
  So do sha1sum, sha224sum, sha384sum and sha512sum.
