Just update for your system. This is the primary purpose
of having in the first place.

It wasn't applied because it makes me having to remember to remove
-lrt on all of my OpenBSD systems that I am working on. That's why
I added a commented out -lrt in, to remind people that
they may need it.

On a similar note, NetBSD needs some stupid feature test macros in
order to expose various declarations/defines to the application. I
have not enabled those by default either. The end result is the same
though, it doesn't build by default.
