Hmph, so the idea is to have

	/* do not include git-compat-util.h here */
	int wrapped_fileno(FILE *f)
	{
		return fileno(f);
	}

in compat/fileno.c and then do something like this

	#ifdef fileno
	#undef fileno
	#define fileno(x) wrapped_fileno(x)
	#endif

for FreeBSD in git-compat-util.h or something like that?

I think I can buy that.
