The post install check refers to it as a 64 bit portability error and
fails the build. Although it's only a warning it's not allowed by the
build service. The patch fixes the build, I was just wondering why the
top of source/blender/blenlib/intern/BLI_bfile.c contained the lines :-
#ifndef WIN32
 #include <unistd.h>
 #include <sys/param.h>
// #include <libgen.h>
 #include <io.h>
 #include "BLI_winstuff.h"
#include <sys/types.h>
where libgen.h is commented out.
