Yup, I had put in the warnings to see (now that I know I need to manually go
look at the build farm) which operating systems these issues were cropping
up. I've just committed a patch that removes the warnings. They were never
intended to be permanent. It looks like the isilon-samba machine in the
build farm now has no complaints about this code except for the warning, so
it should soon build cleanly.

Just so I can see what we're really working with, would you please send me
what your "struct statvfs" looks like.
