Maybe a couple of configure checks would be better?
You could check for sys/sysctl.h and sysctlbyname for instance.

For Linux we cannot check for anything because it uses normal functions
and simply tries to read stuff in /proc. But on FreeBSD, the return of
the first sysctlbyname("hw.physmem"...) may be used as a basis of an if,
placed inside and #ifdef, and before the Linux one.
