OTP R7B minor issues during build

        Hi,

I just put R7B on a laptop running NetBSD 1.4.1, and there were two
small problems.

  1. As previously mentioned on this list[1], NetBSD doesn't define
     IPPORT_USERRESERVED, so I used IPPORT_RESERVED instead. The
     offending NetBSD header file can be found at [2]. I've attached a
     trivial fix below.

  2. $ERL_TOP/lib/erl_interface/src/portability.h doesn't live up to
     its (file)name. Basically, it assumes that GCC version >= 2 means
     that the ELF object file format is used, which is untrue for both
     OpenBSD and NetBSD (and I guess also non-recent FreeBSD
     releases). Maybe the configure script should check for ELF
     somehow...


Otherwise, everything seems to work fine.


Best wishes,
   --Daniel
