I think this patch will work though it's a bit cludgy

This won't work because BSD4_4 is a botched define in that it was
also defined for BSD systems between 4.3 and 4.4, i.e. Net/2 and
possible Reno releases so you can't rely on all 4.4 features being
present even if it's defined. It was defined to be 0.5 in pre-4.4
releases and 1 in the real 4.4 release. CSRG don't screw up often
but they certainly did this time.

I prefer the approach taken in this patch though, it just doesn't quite

I'm looking at all this now, hopefully I'll have something sane worked
out by the end of the night but it'll probably touch too much for
the .12 release.
