Hmmm, it's ugly but perhaps not as ugly:
bash$ fstat -n /kernel < /kernel | grep -v PID
pherman fstat 942 0 116,196608 235 100555 4114305 r /kernel
(the 100555). The bad side is that you'd have to do a little
trickery to catch the correct process. It'd probably be better
just to add an option to fstat to display /usr/ports/sysutils/stat
