Hey Jan,

The bmc_intf.h file is necessary for the Sun /dev/bmc driver.  I don't
include it in FreeIPMI b/c the licensing of OpenSolaris conflicts w/
FreeIPMI.  Anyone who wants to compile FreeIPMI to work w/ it just has
to make sure bmc_intf.h is in their include path so it can be found and
the sunbmc driver can get compiled.

You can read about it in the README.sunbmc.
