 There is something fishy there. Could it be that in openbsd a close()
will terminate a TCP session prior to all data being sent? If yes, then
the issue should now be solved in the repository.

I've now set the diff as a parameter and I've also removed
--strip-trailing-cr. I don't know why it was there, but there isn't a

I've now added a configure time check for librt.
