HTTP server for purely static content

'webfs' is a simple http server for purely static content. You can use it to serve the content of a ftp server via http for example. It is also nice to export files quickly by starting a http server in a few seconds, without editing a config file first. There is some sendfile emulation code which uses read()+write() and a userland bounce buffer. This lets you compile and use webfs on systems without sendfile(). From version 1.14 on, limited CGI support is available (GET requests only); from version 1.18 on, optional SSL support is available.
