I think clang builds with warnings should be possible now.

There's a circular dependency between libnbd & nbdkit unfortunately
(although it's only required by tests).

We need golang >= 1.13, so any platform that doesn't have that mininum
will need to use --disable-golang.  However golang does turn out to be
important (eg. for kubevirt) so we should enable it on the other

I think we can skip distcheck for now.  I only use 'make check'.
