Exim compatibility: close connection + unix sockets

This patch is for sqlgrey 1.6.8, and includes patch 1664054 "Port of postgrey exim patch". It constitutes the following:

- Make sqlgrey close the connection for each request. This behaviour is specified with the --exim option. Please see the above patch for details.

- Support for UNIX sockets. The configuration file parameter "inet" has been replaced by the parameter "socket". Examples:

# Set up TCP socket on localhost, port 2051
socket = tcp:localhost:2051

# Set up UNIX socket at /var/sqlgrey/sqlgrey.sock
socket = unix:/var/sqlgrey/sqlgrey.sock

    A suitable Exim configuration for the acl_check_rcpt section, based on the recipe at http://blog.mombe.org/systems/greylistexim.htm.

    The patch will not work with older versions of the perl module Net::Server, e.g. 0.68. Versions 0.96 and 0.97 have been tested and work fine.

    I'm willing to add exim support (sorry if I missed the previous patch, SF didn't setup the tracker to send mails automatically so they were simply not known to me until I actually browsed them...).

    There are 2 things to make that happen:
    - put these changes in the 1.7.x (devel) branch and not the 1.6.x one as they modify one configuration parameter, I won't put them in a simple patch release (I can port your patch myself).
    - have a HOWTO_EXIM more detailed than the simple sqlgrey_exim.conf file attached. I expect users to have everything they need right in the documentation, even if they are newbies. As I am myself a complete exim newbie I won't be able to answer any configuration question anyway.

    I'll wait for a comprehensive HOWTO_EXIM to push this in CVS: from a standard exim configuration files, which files must be edited and how.
