[UDUNITS #BRI-695847]: Request definition for "count" in UDUNITS-2



Dave,

Done.  It'll be in the next release.

In the meantime, you can add the following to the file 
"src/lib/udunits2-common.xml" in the "Miscellaneous" section and execute the 
command "make install".  Alternatively,
you can add it to the installed file "share/udunits/udunits2-common.xml" (but 
then it will be overwritten by the next "make install").

        <unit>
            <def>1</def>
            <aliases>
                <name> <singular>count</singular> </name>
            </aliases>
        </unit>
