Does not work, because FreeBSD does not know about this macro because it's
a GNUism.  :-)

Uhm, yuck.  How about adjusting #include <sys/file.h> instead?  On
FreeBSD, for user land, it only contains definition of struct xfile (and
(I don't see that John needs this structure, at least not directly):

$ cpp /usr/include/sys/file.h | tail -17
# 1 "/usr/include/sys/unistd.h" 1 3 4
# 40 "/usr/include/sys/file.h" 2
# 149 "/usr/include/sys/file.h"
struct xfile {
 size_t xf_size;
 pid_t xf_pid;
 uid_t xf_uid;
 int xf_fd;
 void *xf_file;
 short xf_type;
 int xf_count;
 int xf_msgcount;
 off_t xf_offset;
 void *xf_data;
 void *xf_vnode;
 u_int xf_flag;

JtR builds fine without it here on Ubuntu as well.  Which systems require
this header?
