Parallel Port (inb, outb, /sys/io.h)

I'm trying to port this old Linux tool to FreeBSD: http://outflux.net/software/pkgs/EPROM/

It controls an EPROM burner through the parallel port. But it uses inb, outb and ioperm functions and is not building properly on my FreeBSD-7.1 server. I get the error "cannot find sys/io.h", and when I modify that to ioctl.h instead, I get a new set of errors:

Code:

Stop in /root/27c801-programmer-1.2.
Can someone help me figure a quick fix to this? I know there is a parallel port library that is supposed to simplify this but I don't want to re-code the application if there's just a magic header file and library I'm missing.

Thanks! That got it to build (I threw in a #include <machine/sysarch.h> which cured the "warning: implicit declaration of function 'i386_set_ioperm'")

I'm still building the burner so it may be a while before I can try it. The software does have a simple test mode, so I'll be able to figure out if it worked before I try it out on anything breakable : )
