The first hunk is to match other Makefile knobs the builders can
tweak with minimum documentation.
As you hinted that there may be other platforms that may want to use
the clipped-write, I would prefer to see this file _not_ directly
include any system headers, but let git-compat-util.h to absorb
platform differences instead.
Of course, inside this file, we do need to use the underlying
write(2), so immediately after including the header, we #undef write
so that this compilation unit will make a call to the platform
implementation of the function.
I do not expect the follow-up patch to Makefile to cause any
problem, but I'd like to see the change to compat/clipped-write.c
double checked on a real Mac OS X system, so that we can squash this
patch into your original.
