If Samba is installed and configured as PDC, xloadimage fail on BUILTIN\users:
build.c:4:213: error: \u used with no following hex digits
char *BuildUser= "uid=0(root) gid=0(wheel) groups=0(wheel),5(operator),1050(admin_nt_group),1069(domain_users),1083(softholder),1106(printer_admins),1322(winbindd_priv),10189(BUILTIN\administrators),10190(BUILTIN\users)";

Please check out attached patch.
It solves another problem: we're moving towards reproducible port builds, and xloadimage is not compatible with it as it compiles current date and `uname -a` output which changes across different systems into the binary. Also it's unable to detect operating system name correctly. So, don't compile date, uname and `id` output in, fixing both problems, and set OS name correctly for better `xloadimage -version` output

No, I got the same error.
You can't have the same error as `id` output can no longer end up in build.c. Please verify that you've placed the patch properly in files/ subdirectory. After patch phase, work/xloadimage.4.1/build-info should be the following:
# this generates the "build.c" file
# try to find out the build date
date='char *BuildDate= (char *)0;'
# try to find out who's doing the build. there are two common places
# for 'id', /bin/id and /usr/bin/id.
user='char *BuildUser= (char *)0;'
# try to find out the system information
uname='char *BuildSystem= "FreeBSD";'
echo '/* THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED */' > build.c
echo $uname >> build.c
echo $date >> build.c
echo $user >> build.c

Sorry, now all correct.
Thanks for testing!

I apologize for my inattention, somehow I failed to get notices from bugzilla for this pr and only discovered it from last weekly reminder.
I test by
