The only difference I see is that pkgsrc builds cairo with glitz support
by default. However, building ciaro with glitz on FreeBSD does not
affect rendering time. D-Fly and FreeBSD 6.X are very different
operating systems. This may be some kind of pessimization in our read
syscall, but I haven't really delved into it.
