Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.14nb1, Package name: libdaemon-0.14nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

libdaemon is a lightweight C library that eases the writing of UNIX
daemons. It consists of the following parts:

* A wrapper around fork() which does the correct daemonization
procedure of a process
* A wrapper around syslog() for simpler and compatible log output to
Syslog or STDERR
* An API for writing PID files
* An API for serializing UNIX signals into a pipe for usage with
select() or poll()
* An API for running subprocesses with STDOUT and STDERR redirected
to syslog.

APIs like these are used in most daemon software available. It is not
that simple to get it done right and code duplication is not a goal.

Log message:
Update from version 0.14 to 0.14nb1.

Pkgsrc changes:
 o On NetBSD 4.*, avoid the use of -Wl,--no-undefined.  It doesn't work
   there, because the shared lib is not linked with libc.so (which is
   possibly a bug).

Thanks to joerg@ for hints for how to work around this.

Log message:
More portable fix for upper bound for signals problem pulled out from
upstream git repo. Should fix build on Solaris, FreeBSD and DragonFly.

If there is still need for Darwin specific fix with __DARWIN_NSIG (there is
no NSIG or it's semantically different like NSIG and _NSIG in Linux), please
add it back.
