In ticket:626, we talk about a change that Apple made to struct stat. (The main thing is that ino_t became 64 bits wide.)

As of Mac OS X 10.6, this new struct stat became the default. We work around this by defining _DARWIN_NO_64_BIT_INODE in the lisp kernel makefile and in the build script for generating the interface database for libc.

We should change the lisp to use the new struct stat, and instead define _DARWIN_USE_64_BIT_INODE if we want to keep running on Mac OS X 10.5.

See the stat(2) man page.
