The modula-3-socks port as well (I happen to know that because I need to
install cvsup with socks support :-)

Eventually yes, but not this way. According to Bruce sys/types is a
prerequisite for sys/wait. Technically speaking, that makes the ports
broken, but the "brokenness" of the ports was caused by FreeBSD not
really enforcing this. If we do make sys/types a prerequisite for
sys/wait, then we need to give porters the time to change their code and
thus need to make sure it still works, albeit with warnings.

So far I haven't seen any direct inclusion of sys/endian.h. It seems
that not including sys/types before sys/wait is by far the most common
case (ie 3 out of 3 :-)
