Hi Glenn,

Thanks for going through the diffs.

ALSA is not native sound system for FreeBSD, and OSS support is already
available so it was excluded.

the libutil.h change (in src/process.c) was for openpty which Emacs was using
at one point of time[1]. It'll be removed as it's not needed anymore.

I'll remove it as well.

Yes, I'll remove them, once I make sure they don't break anything with all
compilers FreeBSD is targeting (clang, GCC 4.2, GCC 4.6+).

They're for installing sources with Emacs, borrowed from Gentoo GNU/Linux patch.

This patch was from bug# 5243, which seems to be committed last year, so it's
not needed anymore.

Are the changes for ARM/SPARC architecture from patch-src_sysdep.c good enough ?
If you think those are fine, then I can file a bug report along with the
