 Just checking, but the variables dot and semi are not used even in
 the NetBSD version since the initial import (in the NetBSD tree).
 What is "the same problem" you mentioned here?  The problem I pointed
 out is just "removing the useless loop would be good but leaving the
 related comments is bad"...

 I don't think it is needed.  The makefs utility is a special case
 because it will probably diverge from the upstream to support
 FreeBSD-specific feature in the future (this is one of the reasons
 why it is not in contrib/).  It didn't happen so far, however.

 By the way, does gcc46 no longer allow unused code?  Generally
 speaking, I think it is enough to clean up unused code only when we
 actually change the code.
