Arnold Robbins (on behalf of all the gawk developers)
Changes from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2

1. Infrastructure upgrades: Autoconf 2.69, Automake 1.12.6, bison 2.7.

2. `fflush()', `nextfile', and `delete array' are all now part of POSIX.

3. fflush() behavior changed to match BWK awk and for POSIX - now both
   fflush() and fflush("") flush all open output redirections.

4. Various minor bug fixes and documentation updates.
