Dominyk, the previous version 1.27.1 should fail same way, IMO.  The code
for xattrs is there for some time.

There is unluckily needed to disable building of xattr-at.c, at least
temporarily (because that tend to be gnulib candiate).  But there needs to
be done some additional work (XATTR_NOFOLLOW vs. l*attr, etc.).

Dominyk or Denis, could you check attached patch?  Note that it requires
autoreconf first.  After that, --without-xattrs for configure should not
be needed.

Also cc-ing Anthony, as that patch removes part of his patch needed for
Gentoo builds (it should not break the build hopefully, but I'm not
completely sure).
