I've run a few tests on this release:

On Linux, everything works as expected, with GCC 7.2.0 and Clang 4.0.

I also tried it on macOS 10.12:

All dependencies (curses, gmp, db) installed from homebrew.

Configured with "CC=clang ./configure --disable-rpath",
"make && make check" works as expected.

With GCC 7.2.0 from homebrew, I get one unexpected error:
testsuite: 13 failed

However, gcc isn't really supported on macOS, so I think that shouldn't
matter much.

Haven't got any *BSD machines for testing where I am now.
