Then the question is which way to abstract things.

Which header file is it defined in? (even better, got a cvsweb link?)
Neither Linux (which often does it's own thing), nor Solaris (which
is very BSD influenced) have this ifi_link_state member. So, it's not
quite a standard. Linux has an MII abstraction, which, while not a
Unix API standard, is a standard of sorts.
