ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of library lcms2 2.8 uploaded.

This is a port of library lcms2 2.8 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

   The little cms library intends to be a small-footprint, speed optimized color
   management engine in open source form written in C.
   Here some features taken from the information provided by the lcms home page
     Basic features:
       Widely portable.
       Easy to use.
       Small, tight code.
       Fast, optimized for speed.
       Handles a wide range pixel formats.
       Implements ICC spec 4.2
       Profile to profile and multiprofile transforms.
       Supports all kind of profiles, including named color
       PostScript CSA and CRD generation

     Advanced features:
       Full multicolor support, including proof direction in more than 4 inks.
       Black preservation on CMYK->CMYK transforms.
       Gamut checking.
       Precalculated device link transforms with prelinearization step.
       Virtual Gray, RGB profiles.
       CIECAM02 appearance model.
       Can write profiles as well.
       Built-In profiles.
       Specialized abstract virtual profiles.
       Ink limiting.

   Please note that this is a library only for programmers.  If you do not
   understand all these, you do not need the port.  lcms is a CMM engine;
   it implements fast transforms between ICC (international color consortium)
   profiles.  lcms is NOT a file format or display library.  lcms knows nothing
   about how to display bitmaps (JPEG, TIFF, GIF or whatever).

   DJGPP specific changes.

   The port has been adjusted and fixed to be compiled with DJGPP 2.05.  Please
   note that the sources may not be compilable if LFN support is not available.

   All DJGPP specific stuff is stored in the /djgpp directory.

   To configure and compile the package you will have to install the following
   packages too:
   Of course, you can always download newer versions of these ports if available.

   The source package has been configured to be build in the "_build" directory
   located under the top source directory.  If for some reason you need to
   reconfigure the sources delete the complete contain of the "_build" directory
   and run the following command:
     ..\djgpp\config.bat ./..

   This is a verbatim extract of the ChangeLog file:
2.8 Featured release

Changed ChangeLog direction
Fixed many typos in comments, thanks to Stefan Weil for doing that.
Fixed localization bug, added a new test case crayons.icc thnaks to Richard Hughes for providing the profile.
Fixed a bug in optimizer that made some formats (i.e, bits planar) unavailable
Fixed misalignment problems on Alpha. The compiler does not align strings, and accessing begin of string as a uint16 makes code to fail.
Added some extra checks to the tools and examples.
Fix a bug that prevented to read luminance tag
BIG amount of functionality contributed/Sponsored  by Alien Skin Software: TransformStride, copyAlpha, performance plug-ins. Fixes some warnings as well.
added an extra _ to _stdcall to make it more portable
Fixed a bug in transicc for named color profiles
Fixed several compiler warnings
Added support for Visual Studio 2015
Fixed for XCODE project


   The port consists of the usual three packages produced using djdev205
   that can be downloaded from ftp.delorie.com and mirrors as (time stamp 2016-11-06):
