Summary description:  Fully automated LaTeX document generation

Announcement text:
   Option -dvilua to generate dvi file by lualatex

   Option -xdv to generate xdv file by xelatex

   To support these, change in definition of $dvi_mode, and new variables
      $dvilualatex, $xdv_mode.

   Bug corrections etc.

   Configuration variable $bad_warnings_as_error to allow certain bad warnings
      in log file (e.g., '\end inside ...') to be treated by latexmk as if
      *latex had reported an actual error.

   On MS-Windows, correctly handle non-ASCII names for file and directory
     variables set in rc files.
   Other improvements in treatment of non-ASCII characters in filenames.
