  While I have some familiarity with the ports tree, I didn't install
it this time because of limited disk space (though I suppose I could
do a partial port-tree install).  Also, my P150 makes compiles long
and painful :)
  To avoid all that, I'm trying to see if a simple binary pkg_add
to Linux-emul 7 would do the trick.
I could try a direct pkg_add from the FBSD-5 ports tree (it all
goes into /compat anyway, right?) but I'm not sure about the kld
issue.  Anyway, I'll think about my options, and whether compiling
from scratch is really worth it for me.  Thanks for your help!
