lftp checks for _Bool with C++ -- what's the proper fix?


I was preparing an update for lftp to 4.3.8 and encountered a problem:
its configure script now checks for _Bool using C++, which, needless
to say, doesn't go over very well.  It doesn't find it, and so it
tries to do its own thing and the build breaks.

I worked around it by messing around with the configure script, only
to find later that FreeBSD does the same thing.  see:;content-type=text%2Fplain

It would've saved me some time to just have applied that patch. ;-)

Is there a better way to fix this?

Also, what is patch-ab handling?
