Linux shared library support with autotools #577
This patch is a first pass at making libuv compilable as a shared library that can be used by multiple projects. The configure.ac is minimalistic (providing checks only for the presence of libev at this time) and does not yet work on non-Linux environments (such as AIX).
Of particular note, this patch modifies the build so that it is linking against the system shared version of libev rather than the bundled copy. This is much safer, as libev has a stable ABI and so it's better to leave updates to the system library.
