dlopen local_scan plugin


Debian has been carrying a single feature patch like forever. It allows to
dlopen a local_scan function instead requiring a exim rebuild. Its main (only?)
user is sa-exim which still seems to have a user base.

I am not happy with this long-time difference to upstream, especially in a SUID
root binary and would therefore prefer to see this integrated upstream (or
rejected with a good reason).

The attached conflicts with dlopened lookup modules since it adds
-fvisibility=hidden to CFLAGS and only makes the functions which may be used in
local_scan modules visible for the plugin.

Thanks for considering/checking, cu Andreas
