Varnish on OS X and bug #118

Hi guys,

With Varnish 1.1, I'm able to get it to run on OS X after manually 
applying the patch in Yay!

The funny thing is that someone else with the same version of OS X does 
*not* seem to have to apply the patch.

I've tried to use the most recent libtool from MacPorts, but to no avail.

Two questions:

  - Is there some workaround I can do to make this work without having 
to patch the source?

  - Is there some way Varnish's configure script could detect OS X and 
make this change as appropriate?

I can't work out what export_dynamic_flag_spec="-flat_namespace" 
actually *does, making it hard to explore the space.

Why do I care so much? I want to build varnish automatically as part of 
a server config, using zc.buildout and We could try to 
patch in that recipe, but I'd rather not.
