Simo and Andreas,

I wasn't sure if you noticed, but a large number of hosts on the build
farm now fail to build because MAP_ANONYMOUS isn't portable. 

It was introduced in:

commit 4fef4fe4986245bfd0ac0c3a3d3a10d330bae09c
Author: Simo Sorce <idra at>
Date:   Wed Apr 20 16:28:57 2011 -0400

    Primarily built for forked off rpc service daemons, but not tied to
    services and generic enough to be used elsewhere easily.
    Signed-off-by: Andreas Schneider <asn at>

An example failing build is:
