The audit_record.h file in src/contrib/openbsm/bsm is not used in building 
FreeBSD; instead, src/sys/bsm is used.  If audit_record.h is being used from 
the contrib tree, there is a problem with the build parts.  Looking at the BSD 
makefiles associated with libbsm, I'm not sure I see how that can happen.

Notice that world builds on all platforms but amd64, and that the build 
failure is not an amd64-specific warning/error in the compile: it has to do 
with matching prototypes, not with pointer/int size, format strings, etc.  I'm 
not convinced OpenBSM is at fault here, although clearly it's triggered by the 
OpenBSM import.
