Drop RHEL / CentOS / Oracle Linux 7 support

Ondřej Surý requested to merge 3729-drop-RHEL-7-and-clones-support into main

The RHEL (and clones) 7 will reach EOL in June 2024, shortly after BIND 9.20 will be released. Drop the support for building on those platforms, so we can use features of modern operating systems - newer compiler that supports at least subset of C23 and OpenSSL 1.1/3.0.

This will simplify some of the code that we are using in BIND 9.

Closes #3729
