    Well, you didn't answer my first query :-).  All right... src/crypto
    looks like it's supposed to operate like src/contrib, so it can go
    into the exclude file (I'll add it back in).

What we really need to do here, though, instead of adding -D__FreeBSD__
to the Makefile, is to undo the mess that FreeBSD makes in this directory and go the way I went with gcc3 and binutils212... that
is, only have the raw, unmodified vendor source in our contrib directories and do the patching as part of the build process.
It's more work but it would make it a whole lot easier to keep up
with vendor updates.

Sounds good. The build-time patching is just like ports! :-)
