If you manually add "#include <libgen.h>" to src/cpulimit.c
and remove "#ifdef __APPLE__" ... "#endif" from tests/process_iterator_test.c
around the "#include <libgen.h>" line, you can run "gmake"
(in src/ and /test, or at the top level), and it will successfully
Error: You must specify a cpu limit percentage
Usage: cpulimit [OPTIONS...] TARGET
-l, --limit=N percentage of cpu allowed from 0 to 200 (required)
-v, --verbose show control statistics
-z, --lazy exit if there is no target process, or if it dies
-i, --include-children limit also the children processes
-h, --help display this help and exit
TARGET must be exactly one of these:
-p, --pid=N pid of the process (implies -z)
-e, --exe=FILE name of the executable program file or path name
COMMAND [ARGS] run this command and limit it (implies -z)
You can try that "quick & dirty" modification and check if
the cputime program _works_ for you.

I'd say it's hard to calculate or estimate absolute CPU time
from relative resource consumption (load). You will probably
have to test this with the real application you want to limit.
