Although removal of AM_PROG_CC_C_O in f107bac8 requires automake 1.14
to provide the same functionality in AC_PROG_CC, any widely used,
modern compiler supports cc -c -o. Reducing the minimum required
automake version avoids the current need for Centos 7 maintainers
to patch configure.ac in order to build binary packages.
allow sendfile() in cross-compile if sys/sendfile.h header detected
and sendfile() symbol detected (e.g. in libc)
If sendfile() is present but always returns ENOSYS, lighttpd will
be slightly less efficient, but will fall back to writev() or write()
User should explicitly set server.network-backend = "writev" in
lighttpd.conf on systems with broken sendfile()
"Remove check for broken sendfile implementations"
- AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS requires autoconf 2.60; using it replaces
AC_AIX, AC_ISC_POSIX, AC_MINIX and -D__EXTENSIONS__
- require at least automake 1.12 to remove hack for serial-tests
- automake 1.12 is from 2012, automake 1.14 from 2013
- automake 1.14 allows us to drop AM_PROG_CC_C_O
- we don't use $LN_S, drop AC_PROG_LN_S
- silent-rules replaces AM_SILENT_RULES

and links to the initscripts of various operating system distros
"init scripts outdated, should be removed"
Lack of pipe2() on relic Unix as well as missing on Mac OSX is likely
one reason why threaded web servers such as nginx choose not to support
CGI except via an external service to the process. Without pipe2(),
race conditions exist and it is not safe for a threaded server to use
pipe() and fork() when the server also does not want to potentially leak
open file descriptors to various unrelated CGI scripts.
