[pacman-dev] [PATCH] diskspace: add the actually used statfs type in ifdefs

Some systems, like FreeBSD might define both statfs
and statvfs: however if statvfs exists whereas getmntinfo()
uses a statfs struct, the current ifdefs would select the wrong
line of code.

Rework of a previous patch. autoconf no longer spews errors
on Linux, but still complains on FreeBSD + autoconf 2.68
I don't know how to fix that, but the errors also appear
with current maint branch.

Still compiles correctly on ArchLinux and FreeBSD with this

On branch 'maint'
