....And possibly a binary to test on?   Although a native BSD port would 
be the most desired option, we will need to test the linux binary 
against the various linux compats for BSD.   We have found in the past 
certain ones work well, and some do not work at all.   Andreas F was 
good to us in the regard that he would compile the binaries to be able 
to run under BSD's linux emu.

This will be a pretty big issue, as evidenced by the forum threads at 
bf1942.lightcubed.com - many admins seek BSD support.
