Description Brooks Davis freebsd_committer 2017-12-12 23:30:40 UTC
sys/msg.h declares the struct mymsg from the example in the posix manpage.  The POSIX manpage is clear that this is user defined:

> The structure below is an example of what this user-defined buffer might look like:
> struct mymsg {
>     long   mtype;       /* Message type. */
>     char   mtext[1];    /* Message text. */
> }

This should be removed and a ports exprun should be performed.
