Log:
General cleanup: 

* Change version number to 2.3
* Change documentation links to new layout
* Updated, concise but hopefully correct discussion of build system
  behaviour w.r.t. threads on FreeBSD
* A little more discussion of buildconf and minimum libtool version on
  Darwin
* More caveat on availability of Windows sourceballs and installers
