Thanks to all who have responded and sorry about that time lag with my

Im not an expert of POSIX standard but i was doing this rethinking after
looking at some include and makefiles from SunOS.
I cant tell exactly where POSIX compliance breaks down at this moment,
gotta check this deeply tonight but if memory serves there were some small
differences with  omsghdr structure and Socket Calls(sendmsg,recvmesg)
if it got sth. to do with POSIX (!??).
maybe this "posix compliant" has sounded too seriously.sorry about that.
