Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, libarchive.org for more info) to build successfully.

    Always use a passthru (proxy) socket when executing external programs that · 53884cce

    use socket I/O (e.g. sexyz, door32.sys doors, sync-xsdk doors) - not just when
    the client is connected via SSH. This solves a number of problems:
    - programs that change socket options
    - programs that don't support non-CP437 charsets (e.g. PETSCII, UTF-8)
    - programs that don't support Telnet-IAC escaping
    
    This greatly simplifies (reduces the need for) input_thread locking.
    
    The passthru_thread now handles chunks of up to 4000 bytes per transfer
    between socket and ringbuf, instead of a char at a time, greatly improving the
    performance.
