A patch is still needed for 0.60.

Yeah; I'm not sure if that's best though. More underscore-prefixed things seem worrying. What's the actual proper way to get SIGWINCH? I get warnings out of gcc by asking for _BSD_SOURCE anyway, even on Linux -- Paul Evans

To get SIGWINCH, one does not have to do anything normally, at least of FreeBSD systems. The following C program shows that SIGWINCH is simply there if signal.h is included: ------------------------ #include <signal.h> #include <stdio.h> int main() { #ifdef SIGWINCH printf("I have SIGWINCH!\n"); #endif return 0; } ------------------------ However, by defining _XOPEN_SOURCE=600 the SIGWINCH definition does not happen anymore. This can be shown by compiling the above program with "cc -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600 winch.c". So an alternative solution would be to drop (or #ifdef) the #define _XOPEN_SOURCE 600" line on FreeBSD systems, maybe also other *BSD systems. I just checked: src/term.c compiles fine without this define.

Any suggestion? What can I rely on #ifdef'ing that with? -- Paul Evans

It seems that this particular problem does not happen anymore in 0.63, that is, src/term.c compiles on all of my freebsd systems (9 .. 12). There are other problems on freebsd, but these should go into other tickets. I think this issue may be closed.
