Actually, I made the test for CRED's before PEER because I thought
CRED's was more portable, and because there is a test where I ask for a
dummy send so I can get the creds and if I did PEER first, I would have
to do an #ifdef PEER then #ifdef SCM which seemed kind of weird. I did
document that I was defining CRED first. I can easily prefer PEER if
people think that is better.

Interesting. Should we remove PEER and go with some kind of CRED's on
all platforms? Remember, PEER hasn't been released yet in our code. It
came from Debian and was only used there in a beta release.

char ident_user[IDENT_USERNAME_MAX + 1];
with StrNCpy as:
StrNCpy(ident_user, pw->pw_name, IDENT_USERNAME_MAX+1);
Am I missing something?
