Well in such a case you might want to provide an abstraction like
implementing pclone() and that is implemented as rfork on FreeBSD and
clone on Linux and then you provide two Makefiles or's for
inclusion, one building pclone() using rfork that is being used on
FreeBSD and the other one building it using clone() on Linux.

I can't see why you'd want configure or something similar for such
kind of stuff.
