You can use the lsof command in ports, which will dig through the
kernel's file name cache and print at least some names.  FreeBSD 5.x's
/proc/*/map does the same thing for you.  If you use lsof, for any
files missing filenames, you can try and find the name by running "find
/ -inum ####", where #### is the number in the NODE column.
