Enhanced patch with configure support

This patch modifies configure to (1) check if mknod() can create a FIFO, (2)
check if mknod() can create a socket, and (3) check if struct sockaddr_un has a
sun_len member element or not.	This information is used in the do_mknod()
routine (in syscall.c) to fill in any missing mknod() functionality on a system
where it doesn't handle a FIFO and/or a socket (and the sun_len change makes
the socket-creating compatibility-code even more portable than it was).
