apparently the patches are to Makefile system, to comply with various 
requirements of the FreeBSD ports (e.g., skipping some gcc compile 
flags). Therefore I assume there is no issue on the C code for compiling 
on BSD.

Anyhow, it would be good to get anything that is commonly useful in 
Makefiles and eventually make the rest configurable via command line 
parameter/environment variables based on detection of bsd. Or add kind 
of profile switch to turn on the option required for building the port 
(e.g.,: make BUILDPROFILE=FREEBSD ...).
