Hacking the system to make it work is potentially dangerous. While it
may work for awhile, there is no guarantee that it will continue to do
so. I believe that finding or developing an alternative solution would
be a better course of action.

As far as supporting FreeBSD as opposed to the myriad of Linuxes, I
believe what Willie Sutton stated is apropos: "Go where the money is ..
and go there often." After all, they are in business to make money,
which allows them to pay their employees, which means they can support
their families, which in turn means I do not have to pay taxes to
support them. Personally, I find that acceptable.

While it may be true that a watched pot never boils, the one you don't
keep an eye on can make an awful mess of your stove.
