#131 Build without error on Haiku (more complete patch)

Simon South

Here's a more complete patch to add out-of-the-box support for Haiku (http://haiku-os.org/).

It improves on the previous patch (ID 3564815) by

- Disabling checks intended for multi-user systems (as Haiku is presently single-user)

- Adding additional library-related settings to remove the need for a custom "LDFLAGS" parameter to configure

- Grouping all custom configuration settings together in a "Haiku specific" section, following the pattern for Solaris, OS/2 and AmigaOS

- Allowing Privoxy to be built with gcc 2.95, desirable as part of Haiku's backwards-compatibility with BeOS---this involved moving a few variable declarations up to the start of functions in filters.c and loadcfg.c

With this patch applied, to configure Privoxy for building on Haiku this simpler command can be used:

./configure --prefix=`finddir B_COMMON_DIRECTORY` \ --sbindir=`finddir B_COMMON_BIN_DIRECTORY` \ --sysconfdir=`finddir B_COMMON_ETC_DIRECTORY`/privoxy \ --localstatedir=`finddir B_COMMON_VAR_DIRECTORY` \ --datarootdir=`finddir B_COMMON_DOCUMENTATION_DIRECTORY` \ --infodir=`finddir B_COMMON_DOCUMENTATION_DIRECTORY`/info \ --mandir=`finddir B_COMMON_DOCUMENTATION_DIRECTORY`/man

    Thanks, Fabian. I've tested the latest code from CVS and it works fine on Haiku with both gcc 2.95 and gcc 4.
