I'd like to give you a heads up that I intend to also remove PECOFF
support from the stable/7 and stable/6 branches. PECOFF support is
non-working and unmaintained in those FreeBSD releases and has lately
still seen public security problems.
PECOFF support is already gone in the upcoming 8.0 RELEASE or the
9-CURRENT development branch.
Should no valid complaints come up saying that someone needs (and
actively uses *cough* PECOFF support on FreeBSD it'll be removed
earliest Novemeber 29th 2009 00:00 UTC (in about one week).
Bjoern A. Zeeb It will not break if you know what you are doing.
