There is no xattr.h on the system (or in the source tree for that  
matter) and there are also no definitions of the missing symbols  
anywhere else in the /usr/include tree.

Where would one obtain such a dev pkg?

Again, is there actually anyone out there who has this built on  
FreeBSD?  It really looks like that is wishful thinking at the moment.
