B.40. libcap-ng

Updated libcap-ng packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libcap-ng library is designed to make programming with POSIX capabilities easier. It is shipped with utilities to analyze the POSIX capabilities of all running applications, as well as tools to set the file system-based capabilities.
Bug Fix
Previously, when listing the file system based capabilities of a single file with the "filecap" utility, it would terminate with a segmentation fault. This error has been fixed, and "filecap" no longer crashes when attempting to list the capabilities of a single file.
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
