[vlc-devel] [PATCH] configure: detect net/if.h correctly on OS X

Hi Rémi,

Thanks for your response.

Being a POSIX advocate myself I would not argue your point that it should not have a dependancy on another header. Unfortunately, I do not own the broken component that is the shipping version of net/if.h in the OS X SDK.

It remains however that the commit that changed this header detection test in configure broke not only my machine but also the vlc-cont-osx-x86_64 builder.

Felix and/or David, can you also confirm the breakage?

On POSIX.2001 systems (so incl. MacOS), net/if.h is unambiguously 
specified to not depend on any other header. Something is wrong with 
your toolchain.

And regardless of POSIX, we don't support compiling without the STDC
