Version increment (2.6.15)

  The monthly realease but a bit rushed due to a security alert:
    ftp://xmlsoft.org/ and GNOME FTP mirrors

I had scheduled to make a new release at the end of the week but this
Bugtraq issue landed in my mailbox yesterday:
Otherwise the code received a lot of testing and bug fixing, it's mostly
cleanups, and especially with the security problem everybody is advised to
update. Please report any problem found in the update, it's likely a new
version will be pushed within one or two weeks if we get troubles:

* security fixes on the nanoftp and nanohttp modules
* build fixes:
  - xmllint detection bug in configure
  - building outside the source tree (Thomas Fitzsimmons)
* bug fixes:
  - HTML parser on broken ASCII chars in names (William)
  - Python paths (Malcolm Tredinnick)
  - xmlHasNsProp and default namespace (William)
  - saving to python file objects (Malcolm Tredinnick)
  - DTD lookup fix (Malcolm)
  - save back <group> in catalogs (William)
  - tree build fixes (DV and Rob Richards)
  - Schemas memory bug
  - structured error handler on Python 64bits
  - thread local memory deallocation
  - memory leak reported by Volker Roth
  - xmlValidateDtd in the presence of an internal subset
  - entities and _private problem (William)
  - xmlBuildRelativeURI error (William).
* improvements:
  - better XInclude error reports (William)
  - tree debugging module and tests
  - convenience functions at the Reader API (Graham Bennett)
  - add support for PI in the HTML parser.

  thanks for everybody who helped with this release by submitting bugs,
code or otherwise,
