Description Allison Karlitskaya (desrt) 2014-01-25 06:57:40 UTC
Some system headers (notably <stdarg.h> on FreeBSD) get upset when they

As a workaround, we can pretend to be lint, which fixes the issue at
least for FreeBSD.

Thanks for the patch. I don't have a FreeBSD system around but this looks fine to me.
