Compilation error when using g++ v6.3.0 c++11 #118

Hi All,

This is just a heads up for anyone compiling the http server using a new-ish gcc compiler. My v6.3.0 g++ compiler generates an error in method:

bool webserver::register_resource(const std::string& resource, http_resource* hrm, bool family)

It is unable to copy the details::http_endpoint object when it is inserted into the registered_resources map. It looks like the compiler is using different STL classes to do the copying and destroying than the ones before. Unlike std::pair, these other classes are not friends of details::http_endpoint.

To temporarily workaround the issue I simply made the copy and destructor methods of details::http_endpoint public.

        http_endpoint(const http_endpoint& h);

When the newer compilers are supported, a permanent solution will need to identify which new STLs are interacting with details::http_endpoint so they can also be made friends. It might be std::tuple and/or std::forward(), but I'm not completely sure.
