  When you resubmit, please also:

- set the patch prefix to 'PATCH v3', using

git send-email --subject-prefix='PATCH v3' ...

- Include the changelog (which you now had in a separate mail) in the 
commit message itself, like so:

openpgm: new package

OpenPGM is an open source implementation of the Pragmatic General
Multicast (PGM) specification in RFC 3208 available at www.ietf.org.
It is required for PGM/EPGM support in ZeroMQ library.

v3: Added Signed-off-by to the patch

v2: improved according to community suggestions:
- legal information supplied;
- OPENPGM_SUBDIR is used instead of a post extract hook;
- more recent release of the package is used;
- cross-compilation fix uses cached values instead of hard-coded ones.

The last thing has been implemented as recommended in Autoconf manual
for cross-compilation-friendly runtime tests. Direct caching of
pgm_unaligned_pointers variable produced a warning during autoreconfigure
that said that only variables containing _cv_ were cached, and
ac_cv_lbl_unaligned_fail was already used in Buildroot, so I based the
test on that one and set pgm_unaligned_pointers later from its result.
