The redland/raptor/rasqal upgrade
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127887 got backed out.
Someone with a Mac needs to see if the configure.in changes are needed
or if it builds on a Mac as-is.  This addresses a bunch of CVEs.

I'm not too worried about the fix for building ODK with Java 8
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127876 which also got backed
out, but the java detection problem is present in AOO416 even without
this fix.  I haven't had time to take a deeper look.  The only critical
issue is that the release build has to be done with Java 7 (Windows
only?).

In addition the bundled version of nss has a bunch of CVEs.  Even the
version in trunk has two I believe.  I spent most of a week trying to
upgrade the trunk version and got a successful build on Windows, but
haven't had time to test it, and my patches need further cleanup.  The
big problems is that newer versions are C99 which the version of Visual
C++ that we use for the Windows build does not support.  I also remember
the pain that we went through to get this working properly when we did
the previous trunk upgrade.  It is used for document signing.

Unfortunately my time is extremely limited for the next few weeks.
