[Clamav-devel] Another bug with ClamAV 0.99.3 beta 1

I just had another look at this today with fresh eyes and I see you've already got a static replacement of strndup for Solaris, so I've included a patch which uses the same function on macOS 10.6.8 or lower.  It relies on the appropriate  (-mmacosx-version-min=10.6) setting on the configure phase, but the chances are if anyone's compiling with 10.6 support, they probably ain't compiling on 10.6 so it's likely being supplied already.

Hope that's useful.

There are a couple of references to strndup in the source for clamd and libclamav - should these be changed to cli_strndup or am I better to include a static replacement function of strndup in the appropriate files that would only be used on 10.6 or earlier?
