Here is a workaround for the broken leopard sendfile():


But, the thing is, it's still broken because it doesn't handle partial
writes.. and sendrecv.c is a mess and I also don't trust the sendfile
test either (it doesn't test with or without headers, file offset, etc).

I'm my opinion we should ship 1.2.x without sendfile support for Leopard
until we sort things out. I'm rewriting the sendfile test to be more
automated (abts suite) and cover more aspects of the API (partial
headers/trailers/files, etc) and once we are sure it works as intended
we can safely backport.
