For rhapsody we have the following in configure:
if test "$ac_cv_prog_gcc" = "yes"
CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -traditional-cpp "
if test $with_named_curses = "no"
Adding the above defines to CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS should give you the
same behaveour in Darvin as in rhapsody

I have access to one MacOS X machine with rhapsody; I can verify this
when I get some time over..

If you don't do that, you will get problems with pthread_kill ?

I have now applied this; I did however add a test to only do
do your FIND_PROC patch on darwin.
