- shift+t now force reloads a selected feed, ignoring the last modified value
- Added a lot of OpenBSD supplied patches (Martynas Venckus)
- net-support.c: HTTP header only needs to be ASCII in the token
- conversions.c: Determine output charset with nl_langinfo()
- xmlparse.c: Convert feed title to target charset, too. Should probaly be in interface.c
- main.c, interface.h, interface.c: Add a signal handler for resizing to work on many other ncurses implementations

There are still some changes missing, but I figured it won't hurt to make two releases. The MD5 can be moved to OpenSSL. After all OpenSSL is available everywhere anyway nowerdays. There was also a patch to use a non-blocking API in the networking code, but it had some really strange side effects like only partially downloading a feed which I didn't quite unterstand so it's just removed for now.
