Bug Description

Here is a patch (as of build17-rc2) that fixes some issues on OpenBSD:

- needs to be linked with execinfo
- <ctype.h> #defines _C to be 20, which conflicts with some templates
- nitems() conflicts with a macro definition in the system
- OpenBSD doesn't have O_NOATIME
- due to namespace issues <sys/types.h> must be #included before <sys/socket.h>
- default to x11 driver

Thanks. Will be merged after b17

Hi Anthony, welcome to Launchpad. (And thanks for your patch)

Note that Debian/kFreeBSD (Debian with the FreeBSD kernel instead of Linux) also had some problems with execinfo. Might be general *BSD issues?

According to the changelog of widelands_17~rc2-3:
"on kfreebsd, the execinfo library cannot be found for an unkown reason.
     Try to survive this fact to fix the resulting FTBFS."

See and for more info.
