sorry to post to myself!  just continuing my thoughts ... maybe
something like this in platform.h is in order

/* define synchronization mechanics */
#if defined(ZMQ_HAVE_WINDOWS)
#elif defined(ZMQ_HAVE_SOLARIS) || defined(ZMQ_HAVE_LINUX)

This might be cumbersome, but would probably help in the long run.
