  Modified files:
    usr.bin/less         Makefile.common defines.h 
  Upgrade to less version 403.
  These are the differences between version 394 and version 403:
  -Allow decimal point in number for % (percent) command.
  -Allow decimal point in number for -j option (fraction of screen height).
  -Make n command fetch previous pattern from history file on first search.
  -Don't rewrite history file if it has not changed.
  -Don't move to bottom of screen on first page.
  -Don't output extraneous newlines, so copy & pasting lines from the output
  works better.
  -The -c option has been made identical with the -C option.
  -Allow "/dev/null" as synomym for "-" in LESSHISTFILE to indicate that no
  history file should be used.
  -Better compatibility with POSIX more specification.
  -Make -f work for directories.
  -Make "t" cmd traverse tags in the correct order.
  -Allow a few binary characters in the input file before warning that the
  file is binary.
  -Don't warn that file is binary if it merely contains ANSI color sequences
  and -R is in effect.
  -Update Unicode character tables.
  -Fix bug when filename contains certain shell metacharacters such as "$".
  -Fix bug when resizing the window while waiting for input from a pipe.
