Use this whenever you want to do a release, to see whether we need to increase the LD interface version.
Variables with the format of *_SOURCES are intended to be matched against programs or objects.
This version should work on all supported platforms, opting to using autoreconf if available.
Bach isn't correctly escaping characters, so that's disabled for now. However, "packed" and "xml" are important to test, since these are most used. "packed" is used for all network traffic, and "xml" is used for persistence on the server and client. "bach" however isn't actually used currently as far as I know.
Bach doesn't correctly escape though, so I disabled that for now.
All html strings containing <>&'" should always be escaped, to allow for these characters to be expressed in attributes and text nodes. This incurs a slight overhead, as we now need to allocate new strings as well as iterate over existing ones. This cannot be avoided though.
Which unfortunately fail with the XML codec.
Bach would only read as much data as fitted into one buffer page, aborting the read too early.
Sometimes it seems like the cpp generation is triggered when it shouldn't be. The end result when building in out of tree builds is that the build will fail since it can't find gen_cpp.py. This commit will fix that.
The test suite fails on some architectures without the spec file, and some distributions require all source to be made available for rebuilds.
