Note 1: avahi 0.6.17 was release on February 2007, there was a lot of
bugfixes in this year...

Note 2: switching to avahi-0.6.22 will need to update libdaemon: blessed
0.10 (Nov 2005), needed >= 0.11 (Jun 2007), current 0.12 (Jul 2007).

Changes in libdaemon:
        0.11: automatically detect whether lynx is installed; properly
        set errno on every error condition; add new function
        daemon_close_all() to close all open file descriptors except a
        given set; add daemon_logv(), which is identical to
        daemon_log(), but takes a va_list argument; add daemon_execv()
        in similar style; other fixes
        0.12: changes include: make daemon_close_all() actually work
Changes in avahi:

        * a lot (really, lot) of bugfixing and a local DoS vulnerability
        * new libavahi-ui, "contains a standard Gtk dialog for browsing
        for services, and a new tool "zssh" that makes use of it, which
        allows browsing for SSH and VNC servers and starts ssh or
        xvncviewer if one item is selected." From avahi 0.6.18
        * new libavahi-gobject: "a GObjectified version of the Avahi
        API" from 0.6.22
        * i18n support - from 0.6.22 (well, by now there are no
        translations available...)
Personal opinion: I think it's better update the dependence, there are
benefits for both users and developers, and it's needed to avoid feature
regression in our Web browser.

jhbuild patch is attached.
