I think you're twice off-by-one here,
: $ cvs -R ann -rRELENG_6_BP param.h | grep '#define.*__FreeBSD_version'
: Annotations for param.h
: 1.244 (sam 11-Jul-05): #define __FreeBSD_version 600032 /* Master, propagated to newvers */
but it still doesn't answer my question. Why you've choosen
this __FreeBSD_version and not RELENG_6_BP (i.e., 600032).
I don't mind it, just want to understand the formulae. :-)

Can you elaborate on what you mean here? I don't understand.
