GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any IP

- Allow compilation on older systems by relaxing the autoconf and automake
minimum versions
- Avoid potential problems in multi-threaded environments by consistently
using pread() rather than read()
- Fix various small issues reported by clang's static analyser

2015-11-01 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.6.7-1
- Update to 1.6.7
- Fixed a MSVC parser stack overflow when parsing 'regionName.c' and
'timeZone.c' (GH#54)
- Updated region codes and timezones
- When using 'GEOIP_MEMORY_CACHE' with an invalid database file, the search
tree traversal could attempt to read memory outside of the memory allocated
for the memory cache, resulting in a segmentation fault; a check was added
to ensure that the traversal code does not try to read beyond the end of
the file, whether in memory, memory mapped, or on disk
- Previously the return values from file reads were ignored; we now check
these values to ensure that there were no errors
