[icinga-devel] add gnulib to icinga

since I am currently investigating some compilation issues on Solaris 
(refer to #521 reported by Alexander Swark), we figured that the 
snprintf.c/.h are rather old in comparison and not even used regarding 
current configure routines checking for *snprintf/*sprintf.

I've talked a bit with Ton and Holger on irc about that, the 
nagiosplugins make use of gnulib for that reason, shipping with a 
standardized toolkit (or similar phrase here).
For resolving issues on at least Solaris configure.in needs to be 
adapted - during this period of work time it would be great to discuss 
about adding gnulib to Icinga Core/IDOUtils. It's mostly asprintf 
failing but in regard of other stuff to come/to be used, this library 
will prevent more failures in the future.

What's your opinion on that?

(this is not something for 1.0.2 but afterwards!)

Kind regards,
