There are other people with the same problem [1]. It seems
related to __FreeBSD_kernel__ (missing macro?). I didn't
go deeper (ENOTIME), maybe someone on the list knows more...

While speaking about conky I'd like mention another issue
- very low MAX_NET_INTERFACES value. When I run VirtualBox,
conky crashes due to increased number of network interfaces
on the host. What about the following patch? (I know it doesn't
cure the the cause... but yet does help a bit)
