In java_md.c

1445       /* See above. Continue in current thread if thr_create()

The "see above" is now a "see below".

I think the launcher changes are okay because BSD/OSX won't use this file.

I think the socket changes are okay as long as BSD builds and OSX builds 
define _ALLBSD_SOURCE. I still don't fully understand if a BSD build and 
an OSX build are distinct.
