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

      Use default calling convention (__cdecl) for DLL funcs in Borland builds. · bf82a889
      rswindell authored
      Fix age-old bug with Borland/C++Builder built executables (Windows):
      to achieve compatibility with  the default __cdecl symbol naming rules of
      Visual C++, we were using __stdcall convention for DLL functions when
      building code with Borland/C++Builder tools and using the default (__cdecl)
      convention when building with Microsoft (Visual C++) tools. Although this
      allowed symbols to be located when linking, the calling convention mismatch
      caused a stack cleanup issue that very rarely manifested itself in a bug
      (e.g. exception of some kind in sbbsctrl.exe, usually). Mismatching
      the calling conventions was unintentional (I thought the default for MSVC
      DLL functions was __stdcall) - but since the calls to MSVC-Built DLL functions
      worked 99% of the time, I didn't realize there was an underlying issue. So I
      now work-around the DLL symbol naming mismatch using a command-line option (-a)
      passed to implib in src/sbbs3/ctrl/makelibs.bat
      
      I had previously worked-around exceptions when calling MSVC DLL functions in
      sbbsctrl.exe by calling the problematic DLL functions from a timer tick handler
      rather than a user control (e.g. button) event handler. Those work-arounds can
      now be removed.
      
      The erroneous "DLLCALL" definition design pattern was replicated (copy/pasted)
      to many other projects' header files in cvs.synchro.net. In the future, we may
      want to just remove all instances of *CALL since they now serve no purpose and
      appear as useless "Kruft" (but do allow us to more-easily globally change DLL
      function calling conventions if/when necessary in the future).
