I've built this version on CentOS 7. It builds and runs.

I've tried this feature, and it works. I've noticed that NSD doesn't
remove the control socket file on exit, but this probably isn't a big
deal. In some situations, NSD may not be able to remove the file anyway,
so there's probably no sense in adding code to clean up.

I haven't tried this yet.
