Sorry about that Paul, I include stuff that people ask me, and I am no
expert on systemd, either.

The code for that has since been removed from NSD in its entirety, in
4.3.0.  The sd socket code is removed.  Code for sd notify is still there.

The --enable-sd-socket option is not needed because code has been
removed.  The --enable-systemd option enables the sd-notify feature.
