    I think I've figured out how to do it.  I added a .makeenv directive
    to make.  I think all I need to do is add this to bsd.port.mk and

# Temporary Hack
OSVERSION ?= 480102

. makeenv UNAME_s
. makeenv UNAME_v
. makeenv UNAME_r
. makeenv OSVERSION

    That seems to fool configure.  It took an hour or two to figure out
    the right parameters... it turns out that just setting the OS name is
    not enough, because our DragonFly version is 1.0 configure wound up
    believing the operating system to be FreeBSD-1.0, which broke a lot
    of things :-).  So I basically have to override nearly all the uname

    Boy do I hate configure. 

    In anycase, I think this will reduce the number of problems sufficiently
    that the remaining problems can be dealt with as they come up.  I am 
    going to commit the name change.
