Any more opinions on this? The alternative would be to just drop OpenBSD,
which would be a fair decision. OpenBSD has more things that are missing
like xattrs, acls, even nsswitch is missing, so it would be a valid
decision not to build on OpenBSD anymore. It would be a bit sad that
due to a clear waf bug we can't build anymore, but if we can not reach
consensus on how to fix it we can decide to just do nothing and leave it
