not binaries, no. To run software for one system on another, you need the source code, and a compiler. You use the source code on your machine to make yourself a new binary for the new system, which should do the same as it did on the old one. Of course the more complicated it gets, the more you will need to change the code to work properly on the new system. Some things are system specific and will require you to port the program over by writing new sections of code.

If you do this, don't forget to make your new source code available!

MAC_PREPARE(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					    MAC_PREPARE(3)

NAME
mac_prepare, mac_prepare_type, mac_prepare_file_label, mac_prepare_ifnet_label, mac_prepare_process_label -- allocate appropriate storage for mac_t SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/mac.h> int mac_prepare(mac_t *mac, const char *elements); int mac_prepare_type(mac_t *mac, const char *name); int mac_prepare_file_label(mac_t *mac); int mac_prepare_ifnet_label(mac_t *mac); int mac_prepare_process_label(mac_t *mac); DESCRIPTION
The mac_prepare family of functions allocates the appropriate amount of storage and initializes *mac for use by mac_get(3). When the result- ing label is passed into the mac_get(3) functions, the kernel will attempt to fill in the label elements specified when the label was pre- pared. Elements are specified in a nul-terminated string, using commas to delimit fields. Element names may be prefixed with the '?' char- acter to indicate that a failure by the kernel to retrieve that element should not be considered fatal. The mac_prepare() function accepts a list of policy names as a parameter, and allocates the storage to fit those label elements accordingly. The remaining functions in the family make use of system defaults defined in mac.conf(5) instead of an explicit elements argument, deriving the default from the specified object type. mac_prepare_type() allocates the storage to fit an object label of the type specified by the name argument. The mac_prepare_file_label(), mac_prepare_ifnet_label(), and mac_prepare_process_label() functions are equivalent to invocations of mac_prepare_type() with arguments of "file", "ifnet", and "process" respectively. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error. SEE ALSO
