I don't see the compat/dirfd.c file in the tree at all.  I was
building from the source referenced from
http://wiki.videolan.org/Solaris - http://repo.or.cz/w/vlc/solaris.git
- my goal is to build VLC on Solaris 10. It seems like the two trees
have diverged significantly. I'm not sure which tree should I base my
changes on. Any suggestions?
