Building Synfig for production

Base dependency to run Synfig on Linux systems is glibc. It has backward compatibility, but not forward. So if you build Synfig on newer OS like Debian 9 it will not start on older OS like Debian 7. To do that we use Debian 7 docker image for building Synfig for production. For testing/debug purposes or for own usage you can build Synfig on any preferred OS. glibc versions (obtained by using ldd –version): * Debian 7.11 - 2.13 * Debian 8.10 - 2.19
