The other way around. First the linux path, if it fails the native one  
is searched.

Andriy, don't expect an easy solution, there are nasty edge cases for  
applications which do or don't do a readdir of directories which exist  
in linux or not (not having (partially filled) linux directories of  
directories where the FreeBSD directory should be used is the best  
solution which works in all cases). The linux_base ports rely heavily  
upon this fall-through feature to provide behavior closest to a native  
FreeBSD application.
