[vlc-devel] [PATCH 0/2] Solaris 10 related patches

These are two patches that I wrote in order to compile VLC on Solaris 10
(sparc). They should be acceptable for other systems too. One is making shell
scripts compatible with /bin/sh, and the other is working around missing
dirfd, in a portable way. It tests for the function, and if it is not found,
it defines a macro. A similar solution was already in the code, so I removed
it and standardized on the macro.

The packaging work has been done for OpenCSW, I aim to produce an updated VLC
package. The last build[1] is from 2004, so it really needs an update.
