I've cooked a diff to allow building memtest86+ with clang.  Great.  The
problem is that I just get a black screen on this x61 laptop (the only
noticeable thing is that the cursor stays in the middle of the screen).

The only problem is, I get the same result with a build with base gcc.

Could people please apply the diff below, build and install memtest86+,
and then test it?  Just type

  > boot memtest

at the boot(8) prompt.

Years ago I had tested this on an x240 machine, and I blamed the failure
on my laptop being too recent.  But maybe that stuff is plain broken
since years.

Both i386 and amd64 could be tested, btw.  Thanks in advance.

PS: earlier I had tried to update the port to the latest version but
didn't get it to build.  Maybe this time...
