Well, in this particular case, the problem happens due to the fact that
FreeBSD's header `sys/file.h' uses u_int, which is defined in `sys/types.h'
and protected by __BSD_VISIBLE macro.  Defining _POSIX_SOURCE or
_XOPEN_SOURCE (to any value) sets __BSD_VISIBLE to zero, and JtR build

None of these tricks helps.  Disabling inclusion of <sys/file.h> allows
recovery.c to compile cleanly with original _XOPEN_SOURCE 500 though.
