I appreciate the work, but this really should have been followed up by
a __FreeBSD_version__ bump, as this unfortunately broke some ports
like emulators/*qemu*. I just filed a PR for it as I noticed it when
doing portmaster -af for the recent X.org upgrade.
FWIW, this can be properly tested with: __FreeBSD_version__ < 900031;
kib bumped the version a week after this commit.
