really? then, perhaps, i'm misunderstanding something.

before i gave up on the v2.6.9+acl+xattr builds, my attempts had
complained about a number of undefined symbols, headers, etc.

to my recollection, at least four referenced & missing headers are:

	acls.diff   --> #include "lib/sysacls.h"
	xattrs.diff --> "#include "sysxattr.h"
	configure   --> #include <features.h>

none of which, afaict, are part of a normal/developer osx install. of
course, my 'locate' may have simply missed them.  can you point to
their paths/locations on your 'normal' system perhaps?

each of the above errors was resolved, in part, by installing the
dependencies i'd mentioned.

if need be, i can reproduce the build output with missing
symbols/headers errors and post it.
