Re: [PATCH V2] examples: Add ssh_server_fork example


Thanks for your comments on this libutil issue. I don't have an opinion
on this, except that maybe you shouldn't invest too much time on this
issue. The examples are there to demonstrate the use of libssh's API,
not to be of production quality.

I'd take any simple patch that removes the warning, e.g. by including
the missing include on freebsd (or HAVE_LIBUTIL_H is defined).
