Before you dive in too deeply, be aware that I have since developed a
patch to "connection.c" which I hope significantly improves its
portability (or at least the chances of its clean compilation).  Let me
tidy up that patch, and then you can assess it on FreeBSD, Debian, and
anything else you wish...  I hope to circulate that patch in a few days.
