Unsafe perl functions.

[ #409 ]
The define -Dusereentrant to perls ./Configure will try use _r functions instead.
It currently makes gmtime and localtime threadsafe. The functions that are still not threadsafe are atleast.
  • rand
  • srand
  • readdir
  • getlogin
  • getgrgid
  • getgrnam
  • getpwuid
  • getpwnam

The ones I am going to fix now are rand/srand, readdir and possibly getlogin.
