It has. But it doesn't, ah, work. Trying to use it feels like using Mozilla
did in 2000 - you can see the hard work that's going into it, but for
actual day-to-day use it's not up to beta status.
After beating my head against the FreeBSD version (and I wish them only the
best in getting it to work properly), I eventually downloaded the Linux
binary. Which works very well with linux_base-7 installed.
