Blast. Sorry about that; can you send a pointer to your patches? I seem to recall that we were amenable to some of the changes, but not all of them.
...looking through the SVN commit logs, we did commit *some* BSD-related things to the v1.4 tree. For example:
These fixes where what I was referring to in the changelog.
Additionally, I just put some work in the development trunk that adds support for a new embedded software support library (hwloc), but, based on feedback from you and others, it allows you to configure one of 3 ways:
* Use the embedded hwloc
* Use an external hwloc installation
* Don't compile hwloc at all
I plan on extending this technique to libltdl, which should hopefully obviate at least some of your patches.
