autofs 5.1.1 release

Hi all,

The thing to watch out for in this release is a change made to program
map execution environments. The standard environment added at program
map execution introduced a security problem when interpreted languages
like python were used. By default, a prefix is now added to these names
to avoid the problem and, for those that wish to force the use of
standard names, a configuration option has been added to do that.


Here are the entries from the CHANGELOG which outline the updates:

Taking this, but will modify tags (lfs and gcc if any) for built only. If you object, please take it or change tag afterwards.

Replying to fo:

If you object, please take it or change tag afterwards.

Or tell me that it works (if compiler is gcc5, this info is also important) then I will modify the book.
