[Xenomai] Porting a library to Xenomai

I'm working to make a library to work with Xenomai. It's a library that has a 
thread and open a socket to communicate with an external device via network.

I have read the guide "Porting a Linux application to Xenomai dual kernel [1]" 
but still I have some doubts in some details. So, here my topics without any 
importance order:

- What is the recommended way to obtain the link, flags, etc information to 
build an application that use Xenomai? xeno-config, pkg-config, some build 
macros to find the information, ... 

- I would like to have a code that could be used with an Standard POSIX or a 
Xenomai. I thought that protecting my code with some #ifdef __XENO__ I could 
choose which part is specific to Xenomai and which no. However, I'm a bit 
confused, because then, I don't understand what is the utility of the wrap 
script. Please, could you elaborate a bit more this part, especially focused 
in an application the could use an standard network interface or rtnet 

- In the document, there's a section about the mlockall option. So, may I 
understand that from xenomai <= 2.6.3 it's not needed that I call the mlockall
