 As I have reported on the DragonFly bug tracking system,
 a minimal C++ test file cpperrno.cpp has been written that shows why
 pkgsrc current devel/xulrunner for firefox 17.0esr breaks only on
 DragonFly, not on other platforms such as NetBSD.  Executing
 $ c++ cpperrno.cpp
 $ ./a.out
 on platforms other than DragonFly produces output
 errno = 22
 while DragonFly produces an error:
 $ c++ cpperrno.cpp
 /tmp//ccTk4OGn.o: In function `(anonymous namespace)::__error()':
 cpperrno.cpp:(.text+0x10): undefined reference to `(anonymous 
 A brief inspection of DragonFly's source code reveals in
 /usr/src/sys/sys/errno.h a declaration using the __thread storage
 class keyword for thread-local storage (TLS):
 #if !defined(_KERNEL) || defined(_KERNEL_VIRTUAL)
 extern __thread int errno;
 Obviously the immediate reaction would appear to be "Fix DragonFly."
 But the use of __thread is there for a reason, excising it would
 appear to have possibly hard to predict breakage for other userland
 programs on DragonFly, and a more elaborate mechanism for TLS would
 appear to require some time to implement.  In the interim, I would
 like to ask what are the limits for hackery that would simply allow
 devel/xulrunner to build again on DragonFly, hackery such as adding a
 fair number of  #ifdef's only for DragonFly?
