[torquedev] Release Candidate for TORQUE 2.5.8

I'm glad to see the _GNU_SOURCE patch was included in TORQUE 2.5.8, however,
there is still a descrepency in behavior pertaining to --enable-unixsockets
when compiling against different versions of glibc.
Starting with glibc 2.8, the ucred struct (declared in
/usr/include/bits/socket.h is wrapped in a #ifdef __USE_GNUC block.
The patch as it appears in 2.5.8 does fix this issue when one explicitly
adds --enable-unixsockets to the configure command line. However, the
configure script (as written) actually attempts to default to enabling unix
sockets, but the since the check itself does not include a _GNU_SOURCE
macro... the check fails....
So for older version of glibc --enable-unixsockets was the default, but on
newer versions the default is --disable-unixsockets. Explictly specifying
the behavior on the command line does get you what you want, but if you were
relyin the default behavior (as we were) you might be surprised after a
I've generated a trivial patch to configure.ac that restores the default
behavior that was seen with the older version of glibc:

+ #define _GNU_SOURCE 1
All this does is ensure that the same _GNU_SOURCE flag is set when configure
is testing for socket.h
