I'm, however, unaware of differences between CLOCK_MONOTONIC and other clock types, as well as which of them is used by FreeBSD's nanosleep(), so it may have implications.
 NB: the same fix is used in multimedia/gavl
 and, judging from Linux man it should be safe:
 POSIX.1 specifies that nanosleep() should measure time against the
 CLOCK_REALTIME clock. However, Linux measures the time using the
 CLOCK_MONOTONIC clock. This probably does not matter, since the POSIX.1
 specification for clock_settime(2) says that discontinuous changes in
 CLOCK_REALTIME should not affect nanosleep()
 Thus, if FreeBSD nanosleep conforms to POSIX.1, it shouldn't matter for
 FreeBSD as well, so clock_nanosleep(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, 0, ...) ->
 nanosleep(...) replacement is safe.
 Thus, the PR is fixed by this patch
