No, it is not the same.  You can either masquerade, by setting UNAME_r
and OSVERSION, or by editing the headers and scripts that define them;
or you can use WITH_FBSD10_FIX for ports that define HAS_CONFIGURE
(which is implied by USE_AUTOTOOLS and GNU_CONFIGURE).  Right now the
masquerading is probably safer, because there are some problems with
the fix that are still being resolved -- and a few ports that may fail
despite the fix.  But of course if you help to test without
masquerading, these problems will be resolved sooner.
