Why exactly is that a good idea?  Since DTrace is Solaris-only, this
almost seems like an attempt to hide non-Solaris-specific information
where people won't look for it.  Moreover, the point of config.sgml
is to describe all the configuration parameters in one place. We do not
need to have people second-guessing that decision for random subsets
of the parameters.

There is high likelihood that DTrace will be present in FreeBSD 7.0 and Mac OS 10.5. So, 3 of the support platforms would make use of it.
