[Libguestfs] [PATCH libnbd 0/2] Two patches to make libnbd work on FreeBSD.



Two simple patches which make libnbd compile on FreeBSD.

Are we OK to copy common/include/byte-swapping.h from nbdkit?  There
is no license issue that I know of.  Should we put it in lib/ or
create a common/ directory?  The header file is actually also needed
by the tests (follow up patch for that) so putting it in common/ might
make more sense.

Some notes if you want to compile on FreeBSD:

 - OCaml is too old to run the generator, so you can't easily build
   from git.  Tarball builds should work, or you can copy the
   generated files across from a Linux machine.

 - Running the tests is difficult because there is no nbdkit package
   for FreeBSD.  With a local build of nbdkit you can play with PATH
   and PKG_CONFIG_PATH to get the tests to work.

Rich.
