Re: [libvirt] [PATCHv2] build: fix build on platforms without ptsname_r

Alas, this is just complicated enough that I don't feel comfortable

that it fixes builds on both FreeBSD and Cygwin, as well as still
behaves correctly with LXC containers on Linux.  Anyone willing to
give this a review before 0.9.7 gets released?

Unfortunately it does not build on Mingw:

Aargh, and my apologies for not testing mingw after updating .gnulib. The ultimate problem is in gnulib, and I will be fixing the gnulib openpty module later this week to provide an openpty stub that at least compiles, while failing with ENOSYS, rather than the current mess of breaking a mingw compile altogether.

But for backport purposes, it would be nice to have a libvirt-only minimal patch against the 0.9.7 tarball that works around the problem, rather than having to do a .gnulib update and cut an 0.9.8 just for mingw.

Unless someone spots an easy patch, it looks like we'll need to do
a 0.9.8 release of libvirt to revert this code

I'm hoping we don't have to go that far; I'll post something later today once I get my minimal patch working.
