As per various emails back in April, some improvements to relocatable.

Patch 1 makes the default license in the files GPL, to avoid confusion; Bruno agreed to this: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2017-04/msg00013.html

Patch 2 adds Valgrind suppressions. One open question is how bootstrap can tell the user about these in the same way as configure.ac and Makefile.am changes.

Patch 3 improves the documentation as outlined in http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2017-04/msg00008.html

The last two patches are more speculative, based on changes I've proposed but had no feedback to. See http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2017-04/msg00027.html

Patch 4 changes the default to relocation being enabled; patch 5 changes the default for ENABLE_COSTLY_RELOCATION to 1. In both cases the idea is that the cost is negligible on GNU systems, and small on almost all systems (Cygwin being the only exception I'm aware of).

​I fixed a couple of problems with the patches and attach updated versions. The descriptions above are still correct.
