Building -DNDEBUG makes the tests pass on Linux.

So serf works "out of the box" only for a Windows release build; it
fails for a Windows debug build, a Linux build or an OSX build
(assuming OSX is like Linux). These other builds need to do something
like 'configure CFLAGS=-DNDEBUG' to get serf to work.

This is a regression from 1.6.6. Can we get away with mentioning this
in the release notes? Do we need 1.6.9?
