[Vm-dev] SCTP in the socket plugin

Frank has asked me to post here. I have started to add basic SCTP support
to the socket plugin and VMMaker. To the best of my knowledge Linux, (Free)BSD
and Solaris have SCTP support. OSX and Windows do not support SCTP out of
the box.

My change to the unix SocketPlugin is quite tiny and can be seen here[1].
The change to the VMMaker and Pharo's NetworkKernel is here[2]. I am interested
to get this include into the VM.

What I have not done is to change the CMakeVMMaker to generate a CMakeLists
that will test for the availability of runtime sctp libraries. How would you
support such an optional dependency?
