That is correct. > Is __FreeBSD__ only for the Real FreeBSD, and if yes, what should the > code check for instead or in addition? Yes, __FreeBSD__ is only for the Real Thing. On GNU/kFreeBSD, we have __FreeBSD_kernel__ instead. This is because while we have the FreeBSD kernel and everything that it includes (kernel, devices, syscall sematics) we use glibc as a libc (and all the semantics that includes). This means that we also have the glibc symbols. To answer your question in this case, yes, GNU/kFreeBSD does the same thing. In fact, it has the same file. So you could change: #ifndef __FreeBSD__ to #if !defined(__FreeBSD__) && !defined(__FreeBSD_kernel__) or something equivalent. Thanks for asking; it's really nice to know there are DDs that care about the port.  Cue the Coca-Cola commercial.
