Minor NEWS cleanup, mainly for "Installation Changes" section.

* etc/NEWS: Reorder items.
Standardize new --with-libfoo type configure options.
Don't say precisely which library versions are needed - it tends to
change and people who care can look at configure.
Move new Hebrew tutorial entry to "Internationalization changes" section.
Small tidy up for imagemagick and gnutls entries.

* src/gnutls.c (syms_of_gnutls): More doc (from etc/NEWS).

** Configure links against libselinux if it is found.
You can disable this by using --without-selinux. See below for
information on SELinux support.
** Emacs can be compiled with Gtk+ 3.0 if you pass --with-x-toolkit=gtk3

also depend on Gtk+. You can disable them with --without-rsvg and

`--without-gnutls'. See below for GnuTLS features.

** There are new configure options:
--with-mmdf, --with-mail-unlink, --with-mailhost.
These provide no new functionality, they just remove the need to edit
lib-src/Makefile by hand in order to use the associated features.

** GnuTLS
*** Emacs can be compiled with libgnutls support
This is the default. You will then be able to use the functionality
in gnutls.el, namely the `open-gnutls-stream' and `gnutls-negotiate'
functions. It's easiest to use these functions through
`open-network-stream' because it can upgrade connections through
STARTTLS opportunistically or use plain SSL, depending on your needs.
Only versions 2.8.x and higher or GnuTLS have been tested.
[FIXME: this statement needs clarifying, given that GnuTLS >= 2.6.6
is the test used by configure.]
*** gnutls-log-level
Set `gnutls-log-level' higher than 0 to get debug output. 1 is for
