It a sound library, JACK. I dunno, I'll try commenting the code, see what happens...

How can I programatically find out the CPU frequency?

I'm trying to port a program from Linux, and it uses /proc/cpuinfo.

$ cat /compat/linux/proc/cpuinfo
cpu MHz         : 349.20

Pretty neat, but it does not exist in FreeBSD, and sysctl does not
give out this information. Grepping the dmesg.boot seems somewhat odd
for a C program:

$ dmesg | grep -i hz
Timecounter "i8254"  frequency 1193182 Hz
CPU: Pentium II/Pentium II Xeon/Celeron (349.20-MHz 686-class CPU)

Better ideas?

I think someone suggested that more CPU information be exported via sysctl nodes at some point, but no-one has found it important enough to code. Note that on laptops and many ACPI motherboards, you can tweak the CPU speed on the fly, so you can't just store the bootup value. Other architectures may also allow multiple CPUs at different speeds.

As for your issue, I'd say just comment the code out.  Do you really
need to know the CPU speed?  Another option is to shell out and run
cpuid or x86info, but those are x86-only, of course.
