The specific problem is the "--config" vulnerability noted
on BugTraq, which ios easily fixed by "#ifdef'ing" it out.

I understand that there have been a lot of bugs that have
been listed as "FreeBSD bugs", when they were really software
from third parties, but that's really no reason to be so
hypersensitive about the distinction that FreeBSD becomes
nothing more than the kernel and perl.
