[DeleGate-En] DeleGate/8.11.1 -- fixed I/O timeout, virtual host & transparent proxy, coped with non-C99

Dear DeleGate users,

I inform you of the new release of DeleGate available as follows:
 DeleGate/8.11.1 -- fixed I/O timeout, virtual host & transparent proxy, coped with non-C99 preprocessors

 This version fixes several bugs and copes with non-C99 compliant compilers.

A bug which has been from the beginning of DeleGate is timeout of connect/
read/write on TCP connection.  The timeout is implemented with SIGALRM
signal, and the signal is masked in the signal handling function, but the
mask is not cleared (i.e. not restored as in setjmp()) if the signal handler
returns with longjump() on non-BSD OS family.  Thus the second and after
SIGALRM is disabled to make timeout disabled.  So pairs of setjmp/longjmp
is replaced with sigsetjmp/siglongjmp.

To disable string buffer overflows, DeleGate after 8.10.3 have come to
require to be compiled with C99 compliant preprocessor which supports macros
with variable number of arguments.  But since it was revealed that there
are many non-C99 compilers alive, this version was modified to expand
such macros by self before C preprocessing.
