Quite the opposite I'd say.  From libbsm/Makefile:

# Must use BSM include files from within the contrib area, not the system.
CFLAGS+=        -I${OPENBSMDIR} -I${LIBBSMDIR} -I${.CURDIR}/../../sys
                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I.e., the contrib one comes first.  It's in the amd64 lib32 build that the
version from sys/ gets used, due to a minor bug (what an irony) in the
32-bit build subsystem.  It's the sys/ header was broken.  You can easily
verify it yourself by checking the contents of .depend files in the obj

Like I said in another email, if you want the sys/ version to always be
used, "cvs rm -f src/contrib/openbsm/bsm/audit_record.h" and any other
similar headers because apparently -I${OPENBSMDIR} is needed.  If you
will be able to build without -I${OPENBSMDIR}, then no contrib/ header
need to be removed on HEAD.  I don't think this is actually possible,
since it needs the following not otherwise installed contrib/ headers:

        <probably several others>
