So I presume the WITH_FBSD10_FIX flag is set in /etc/make.conf, right?
Setting this and try building ports without the masquerading will help
those people involved in fixing more than the masquerading solution? If
so, I would like to do so. I compile/update quite often ports, simply to
keep my system fresh and for some testing purposes. At the moment I
switch very often between CLANG and the legacy gcc 4.2.2 of FBSD 10, so
it would not bother me much more as the inherited bothering due to the
problems discussed if I have to switch one time more or prepare a PR for
the problem.

On the other hand, as far as I know, there was only suggested using
UNAME_r. When do I have to use the OSVERSION?
