Mac OSX is a BSD, and I know some people told that they succeeded 
compiling Gambas on it.

But when I told you about BSD, my words were not to be taken literally.

I wanted to point that you are using a specific Linux command, and that 
it's not a good idea to base a component on it.

Moreover, I don't know exactly what you want to do with that component, 
but if you have the same goal than Fabien, and/or if you aim at browsing 
the disk units to show them to the user and allow him to mount/unmount 
them, then you must look at DBus instead.
