Maybe I've put the cart before the horse a little bit ;)

Anyway, BSD and Linux UUID implementations are slightly different, but I
was able to get two variants of the extension to compile on NetBSD and
Ubuntu. I don't have the necessary autoconf-fu to "merge" them together
though, and to make sure that they compile on the various bsd/linux

You can find the code here:
https://github.com/mbeccati/uuid # NetBSD variant
https://github.com/mbeccati/uuid/tree/linux # Ubuntu variant

For now, I've forked just RhodiumToad's uuid-freebsd extension, but I've
made sure make works fine when cloned in the contrib folder.

* Both the variants use a copy of pgcrypto md5/sha1 implementations to
generate v3 and v5 UUIDs as porting is much easier than trying to use
the system provided ones, if any.
* I've fixed a bug in v3/v5 generation wrt endianness as the results I
was getting didn't match the RFC.
* The code is PoC quality and I haven't touched the docs/readme yet.
