ucontext is not available

That isn't the point.
Firstly we're talking OPENBSD, not FREEBSD which is vastly different.
Secondly, its not about "can i get this to work with my favorite distro".
ucontext is a long deprecated library that makes use of long deprecated c  
functions. Using it goes against best practices.
If it weren't for certain applications/distros, ucontext would be dead a  
long time ago.
The idea is to replace the deprecated library with something that doesn't  
use deprecated c functions and is more portable.
