WANTED: defaults for 'panic action' for various systems

I've added support to Samba so that it's stderr is always redirected to
it's logfile.  

I'm hoping that this will allow us to create a default for 'panic
action' that can get user's the debugging information they need when
smbd crashes.  In particular, it could give us vital clues in some of
the unreproducable crashes we get from time to time.

So, the challange is out:  Provide a patch that implements a configure
test to find the appropriate debugger, invokes it in a secure way and
outputs it's work to stderr.  From there it will end up in the currently
open logfile.

Anybody interested?
