Re: [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.

Are you sure?  I checked repology.org and it says the FreeBSD Ports have 4.05.0,
which I managed to make work by a simple patch some time ago.  I'm setting up a
FreeBSD machine to try it out.

- 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.
