Update Information:

Convert::UUlib 1.5 ==================   - fix a heap overflow (testcase by
Krzysztof Wojtaƛ)  - on systems that support it (posix + mmap + map_anonymous),
allocate all dynamic areas via mmap and put four guard pages around them, to
catch similar heap overflows safely in the future  - find a safer way to pass in
CC/CFLAGS to uulib  - added stability canary support
