Ah... that could be it!

But why doesn't the aperture package use <sys/param.h>, i.e.
/usr/include/sys/param.h ?  That would make more sense, since pkgsrc
isn't documented to allow cross-compilation, only native compilation.
(And when it does, some time in the future, that way it would really get
the cross-environment header file.) Not to mention that one needs the
kernel sources installed unnecessarily.
