Hello List,

I'm porting a c++ application to FreeBSD. I've got an error:
-----
~/work/src/FileChannel.cpp: In member function 'QString 
FileChannel::errorString()':
~/work/src/FileChannel.cpp:251: error: invalid conversion from 'int' to 'const 
char*'
~/work/src/FileChannel.cpp:251: error:   initializing argument 2 of 'char* 
strcpy(char*, const char*)'
*** Error code 1
-----

A simle patch makes the application to be compiled without errors:
-----
--- src/FileChannel.cpp.orig    2009-09-12 13:08:28.000000000 +0400
+++ src/FileChannel.cpp 2009-09-12 13:08:41.000000000 +0400
@@ -248,7 +248,7 @@
 
 QString FileChannel::errorString()
 {
-    strcpy(lastErrorString, strerror_r(errno, lastErrorString, 0));
+    strcpy(lastErrorString, "XXX: Fix me: errno should be here");
     return QString(trUtf8(lastErrorString));
 }
 
-----

If I understand correctly, an integer value which is returned by
strerror_r() should be converted to const char*.

I have _very_ basic knowledge about c++. Hence my question.
Can someone provide a patch (a proof of concept)? Thanks!
