i had a look at these files, and it seems that both lib/os.c and
include/bgav_sem.h only use BSD-code as fallbacks if certain features
are missing on the system.

those features are:
- - /usr/include/semaphore.h (on debian provided by
hurd-dev [hurd-i386], libc0.1-dev [kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386],
libc6-dev [not alpha, avr32, hurd-i386, ia64, kfreebsd-amd64,
kfreebsd-i386], libc6.1-dev [alpha, ia64])

- - inet_aton() (which i think is part of libc as well)

can this be handled somehow in the packaging process?
e.g. by patching the offending code out of the files or by excluding the
files from the upstream-tarball and providing clean (GPL) replacements)?


this would leave only lib/base64.c
