     For starters this should be listed under standards, not kern.
 Second off, FreeBSD hasn't made a real effort to implement XSI
 streams, so I don't think that this really should be `fixed', but
 instead glibc should be adapted to work without XSI streams on
 FreeBSD, because regardless of whether or not the data type is
 defined, if the libcall can't function properly when calling the
 kernel interfaces, having an additional set of datatypes is
 essentially superfluous support.
 PS Just like glebius@ I'm not representing the official opinion of the
 project :).
