 By "nonstandard" I refer to the fact that you have overwritten header
 files included in the OS with versions included in the ports tree.  This
 is not a standard thing.  Not everyone has this configuration.  In fact,
 you are the only one that has _ever_ reported this problem.  Given that,
 and since you know how to workaround the problem locally, I am not
 inclined to hack the gnomevfs2 port to work with this.  Should bind84
 make it into the official base OS, I imagine the necessary symbols will
 be added to libc (thus this will never be a problem for standard FreeBSD
 installations); or, if not, I will revisit the issue.
