On OS X 10.11.3 (btw, not an option in the Bugzilla platform options:)

src/Makefile.am assumes that if you're not on Windows that --export-dynamic is
a fine linker option on all Unix platforms.

However, on OS X, you need to use -export_dynamic and otherwise the build dies.
I verified that fixing this by editing Makefile.am and doing an autoreconf
worked -- the build then functioned.

I'd submit a patch but I'm unsure about what if PLATFORM_ goop I need to
specify OS X.

FYI, I'm the macports maintainer for claws-mail -- for the moment I've done a
kludgy patch on macports so that it can be updated to 3.13.2 so that the remote
exploit can be fixed, but I'd like to "do this right" soon.

Happy to test fixes made to the git version btw.
