Hi,

I've read the mailing list threads about this enough to know where the
ClamAV developers seem to stand on this topic.. :(

It's pretty surprising that the defacto OSS enterprise AV solution for
Linux cannot be built with full features on a standard fully patched
EL7.7 box.

We discussed this today now that 0.102 has hit EPEL and all of our
previously functional OnAccess scanning is now non-functional...

According to the libcurl documentation ACTIVESOCKET[1] was introduced in
curl 7.45.0 as a replacement for the merely deprecated LASTSOCKET[2]
because LASTSOCKET[2] doesn't work on win64. Was there any consideration
to compile-time selection of libcurl's ACTIVESOCKET[1] vs. LASTSOCKET[2]
in ClamAV 0.102 based on what version of libcurl was found?
