    configure: check for socat and its escape feature · 87c1d0c7
    Guido Trotter authored
    Currently we use a static value for the socat path, or we trust the
    user-provided one. With this patch we still trust any user provided
    value, but if none is passed we check for socat on the machine we're
    being configured on. This allows us also to check if we can or cannot
    use the escape= feature in socat.
    If the user has forced the path in, he can also pass --with-socat-escape
    in order to force the escape functionality to be used, even if a check
    is not done.
