Heh.  I don't even try to understand the code.  I've been able to find
and fix half-a-dozen compile problems only because I know that the code
itself is okay.  I know that the compilation problems are due to errors
in the 'config' process, not bugs in the code.

So I just grep through the code for strings like 'FreeBSD' and 'NetBSD'
and try to figure out how I can teach 'config' to recognize problems
which are specific for DragonFly.  I'm hoping that Geert has kept a
record of all the fixes I've emailed him so far.  Most of the fixes
are truly trivial -- only one took a bit of head-scratching.
