     avserver: remove daemon mode

     This code spews a multitude of warnings with glibc (unchecked
     return values), some of them possibly warranted.  Furthermore,
     the deamonisation is not suitable for use with typical startup
     scripts as it does not provide the PID of the daemon in any way.
     Users wishing to run avserver as a daemon can still do so using
     start-stop-daemon or equivalent tools.

 Note that Libav recently dropped avserver alltogether. We still keep it
 because it seems we have a maintainer. Unfortunately, there is not much
 development around ffserver, and contributors are extremely welcome.
