Give this a try, I've tested it on linux, but not BSD.  From what I read the
functions are not posix compliant, though they should exist on all BSD and Linux
systems in recent history.  There may be some fiddling needed for Net and
OpenBSD variants, but I think this is the right general direction.

Can someone test it on BSD?  I'd like to ensure we don't need to modify it for
that platform

For compile on FreeBSD 10 we need "#include <sys/endian.h>" and this
works.
