Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.12 to GLib 2.25.13

|   WARNING: There have been no breaks in API or ABI.  Weird, eh?   |

The primary purpose of this release is to fix a serious problem with
glib 2.25.12: glibconfig.h (as generated on a Fedora amd64 system) was
being distributed in the tarball.  It was being used to build some parts
of glib on other systems (eg: 32bit ones).  This was causing some very
serious problems.

There have been many other improvements, however:

 Build and testing:
  - vastly improved test coverage
  - old tests moved to the gtester framework
  - gtester Makefile modified so that the tests only run once
  - cleanup of how we handle includes while building glib

  - add a g_return_if_fail (utf8) to g_variant_new_string()

  - perform extra sanity checks when serialising messages
  - add API to query and set the byteorder of a GDBusMessage
  - improve debug output, add some extra options
  - if exiting due to the bus disconnecting us, print an error message
    explaining why
  - sort property names correctly
  - don't bother sending RemoveMatch when we will close the connection
  - use effective uid/gid for credential passing

  - add G_SETTINGS_BIND_INVERT_BOOLEAN for inverting boolean bindings
    without mapping functions
  - mark all strings in the schema compiler for translation

  - improve closure support for bindings
  - copy GSettings INVERT_BOOLEAN flag

  - fix another complicated GCancellable deadlock possibility
