bin/couchdb does not honour -o and -e when running in foreground / without -d (matters on macosx)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-278
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-278
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build System, Database Core
         Environment: any *nix
            Reporter: Florian Ebeling
             Fix For: 0.8.1, 0.9


When couchdb is running in foreground, then the option flags -o and -e are not honoured. This
probably quite ok on most systems because foregroud there equals roughly to development mode.
On the mac this is different, because fork and daemoinze calls are deprecated, services are
managed using launchd, and launchd watches these processes directly. It depends on these processes
not (double-)forking and intentionally dying.

So in the current state of things the provided plist starts couchdb, quite consequentially
does not use -o/e and. That works, but has the effect that couchdb writes to stdout, which
launchd apparently forwards to syslog. So the syslog ends up being hogged by access-log level
messages. And it is not possible to avoid that by simply editing the quasi config file .plist.

I will attach a patch which changes bin/couchdb, .plist, and etc/Makefile.am to make this
work more like I reckon it should.
