FYI: Ive posted an article to about compiling
errors for wine. This is caused by an redefinition of "struct thread". This
is the state at present:

Can you elaborate?  The application is pulling in the system
header sys/proc.h where struct thread is defined.  If an
application purposely pulls in a system header file, how can
the system header pollute the namespace of the application
when the applications requests the information in that header?
