explain_bind_or_die — bind a name to a socket and report errors
void explain_bind_or_die(int fildes, const struct sockaddr *sock_addr, int sock_addr_size);

This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:
explain_bind_or_die(fildes, sock_addr, sock_addr_size);
The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.
The sock_addr, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.
The sock_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
