This one is defined in a file called ip_compat.h. I'll try to get it
to work. So far, I've cloned the git repo to a Solaris host, and ran
build.sh. The ./configure script wasn't generated correctly, and
failed with unexpanded libnotify errors ‒ the libnotify macros are
absent on Solaris.

statgrab library.

./configure: line 24819: syntax error near unexpected token `LIBNOTIFY,'

I need to either come up with a fix for that, or work with a released
tarball instead. To be continued.
