Hey folks. I'm working on a port from Solaris to FreeBSD. For the
most part, things are pretty straightforward, but I can't seem to find
the details on thread safety for some system calls.
gethostbyname_r() is the thread safe call that replaces
gethostbyname() on Solaris.
Is there a similar alternative call in FreeBSD, or was the default
system call modified to ensure thread safety?

You can never tell which way the train went by looking at the tracks.
