FreeBSD-specific features might comprose the IFF_DRV_RUNNING, IFF_DYING,
flags. DragonflyBSD Git and NetBSD 6.1 don't have these flags, FreeBSD
9.x has them in net/if.h, haven't checked if 8.x had them; and 10.x has
them but I didn't check if they're still in the same place (aka include

MacOS X/Darwin being a derivative of FreeBSD will often work (might also

don't know when exactly they forked.
