recently I have been trying to make port of lang/mono usable on my
1.6-stable. The first thing is, I disagree with ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM defined
in it's Makefile (IMO as mono is opensource it should be able to compile
on various platforms, not only i386). Second thing, it needs
to build correctly, and the third thing is: files in
/usr/pkgsrc/lang/mono/work/mono-0.24/mono/io-layer need POSIX semaphores to
build. I have been googling for porting software to BSDs which don't
have POSIX semaphores, but I was unable to find correct solution.
Any hints how to do that? Should I use some library, try patching mono code
or just wait for NetBSD 2.0, which, as the Changelogs say, supports
