A default gdp router should be contacted if a local gdp router cannot be found
Unfortunately, building the zero-conf libavahi under Mac OS X is difficult under brew.
As a result, I added "make no-avahi" targets to the Makefiles that will build without libavahi.
Even if zero-conf libavi is compiled in, if there is no gdp router on the local subnet, then the gdp router will not be found.
It would be helpful if a default gdp router was compiled in to the library. The default gdp router would be used if libavahi functions are not included in the library or if zero-conf fails to find a gdp router on the subnet.

Compiling local hostnames into the code is a bad idea. The installation scripts should populate the
swarm.gdp.routers parameter (in
/etc/ep_adm_params/gdp). If they aren't, that's a different bug.
