this patch adds iOS support to configure.

For some of you, it might look shocking at first. The rationale is that Mac OS X and iOS can't be easily split by configure, so I implemented the following:
By default, configure will compile VLC for Mac OS X once it runs on Darwin (same behavior as before).
However, you can specify --enable-ios and --disable-macosx to disable the Mac OS X support and enable iOS (regardless of the iOS architecture, since x86_64 and i686 are valid targets as well). By doing so, configure will try to find an iOS SDK and will use slightly different CFLAGS.

The previous --enable-macosx check was renamed to --enable-macosx-gui, as actually just enables the Cocoa interface in modules/gui/macosx and isn't related to configure's actual OS X support.

Feedback is welcome!

Best regards,
