CLOEXECis supported, we now set it on the lock file fd and pipe, which means the lock is more reliably released when a program using xapian calls
XO_LIB_XAPIANto work without libtool with modern versions of GNU m4.
- Improve configure probe for
sys_errlist, etc by ensuring we can actually link a test program using them. Previously we only checked they were declared, but the Android NDK declares
sys_errlistin its headers but doesn't actually implement it. Patch from Tejas Jogi.
- Fix configure to find
jni_md.hon Cygwin, OS X, *BSD, AIX. The issue with Cygwin was reported by John Bankert on xapian-discuss.
- Allow building against xapian-core 1.4.x as well as xapian-core 1.2.x.
