      Description

      Currently, building the server on a platform that does not meet our required OS minimum will likely result in a compile error (see SERVER-17813).

      We should attempt to verify that the target OS meets our requirements with a configure check and terminate the build with an error message if the configure check fails.

      Much like we have for compiler version enforcement, we should also probably provide an override flag (--disable-minimum-target-os-version-enforcement or something).
