Ok; a first try is available at
Large parts (but not all) were C'ified (C99 compiler prefered, but gcc
2.95 works too). The new buildsystem required some structural changes
(*.cc -> *.c renamings, new directories, ...) so there is not very much
common with the original vserver-0.23 package on the first glance.
But the C++ -> C transition itself was mainly the removal of 'extern
"C"' and the rearrangement of variable declarations.
Else, I have not changed the functionality and the only improvement
is a 'libvserver.a' library which provides the syscall-wrappers. To
avoid conflicts, there should be chosen more unique names but to keep
compatibility I am using the old ones (e.g. 'has_chrootsafe()').
