 * Build system, various plugins: Many build fixes for FreeBSD,
   OpenBSD, NetBSD, Solaris and Mac OS X. Big thanks to Doug MacEachern
   for many fixes and providing a build system for many platforms,
   Ulf Zimmermann for providing a FreeBSD system and Simon Kuhnle for
   providing an OpenBSD system.
 * collectd: Fix a potential race condition when creating directories.

   Thorsten von Eicken for reporting this problem.

   is initialized and dispatches a value before the rrdtool plugin is
   initialized, the daemon may crash.
