Oh, I see. You would be able sometimes to translate the calls, because
they are issued by a true Linux lib and sometimes not, because, though
being executed under Linux emulation, they are placed by a native BSD
lib. Is that it ?
Maybe your right : a pre-call or something would set a boolean flag.
But, it would require a special compiling of the BSD library, something
at compile time, before each call.
Whatever, that may be worth giving it a thought.
