This release fixes a myproxy-logon security bug in MyProxy versions
5.0-5.2 that disabled server identity verification:

Other changes in this release:
- if myproxy-logon GSI mutual authentication with the myproxy-server
  fails, try again with client-side anonymous authentication,
  in case the client-side GSI credentials are unacceptable to the
  myproxy-server (for example, signed by an untrusted CA), but the
  myproxy-server would accept an anonymous client
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7103)
- fix configure checks for globus_usage_stats_send,
  globus_usage_stats_send_array, and
  globus_gsi_proxy_handle_set_extensions when installing without
  existing Globus libraries in LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7098)
- in myproxy-server-setup, look in /sbin and /usr/sbin for chkconfig
  or update-rc.d in case they're not in PATH
- add certificate_issuer_subca_certfile option in myproxy-server.config
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7119)
- make all Globus Usage library errors non-fatal
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7111)
