GNU RCS 5.10.1 available

release notes:

  Maintenance release.  We welcome Efraim Flashner, Christoph Karl,
  and Ray Bellis to the THANKS file.

README excerpt:

  GNU RCS (Revision Control System) manages multiple revisions of files.
  RCS can store, retrieve, log, identify, and merge revisions.
  It is useful for files that are revised frequently, e.g.,
  programs, documentation, graphics, and papers.

NEWS for 5.10.1 (2022-02-02):

  - distribution now .tar.lz only

    If you have GNU tar, you can use "tar xf" and it will DTRT.
    If not, you can use "lzip -dc TARBALL | tar xf -" to unpack it.

  - bug fix: handle unexpected byte in edit script (rlog)

    Previously, a comma-v file w/ an unexpected (non-'a', non-'d')
    dispatch byte in the edit script would cause rlog to segfault.
    Now, rlog displays an error message w/ diagnostic and aborts.

    The segfault is a regression brought by RCS 5.8 (2011-08-30).
    RCS 5.7 (1995-06-16) would abort correctly, but used a different
    diagnostic message -- "bad diff output line" -- that did not
    include line number information.

    Thus, because of the new (line number) info, new test t303 fails
    for RCS 5.7 as well.  Test number 3xx is for rlog functionality
    and not a regression, even though the problem has regression
    nature, too.

  - portability fix: use ‘SIGSTKSZ’ more gingerly

    Some versions of this <sys/sigstack.h> element cannot be used
    in the CONDITION portion of a preprocessor-conditional (‘#if’)
    construct.  No problem, we found another way.

  - misc portability tweaks via gnulib

    As usual, GNU gnulib provides the right amount of buffer between
    the Ideal and the Real worlds.  Thanks, gnulib.

  - bootstrap/maintenance tools
