  Modified files:
    usr.bin/pkill        pkill.c 
  Sync as close as possible with NetBSD.
  This includes fixes and cleanups listed below:
  - If a process dissappears while we are signalling it, don't count it as a
  - Better handling of errors and messages.
  - Downgrade failure to kill(2) (other than ESRCH) from fatal error to a
    warning; otherwise processing aborts and possibly matching killees would
    remain unsignalled. This makes pkill match the Solaris behavior.
  - Exit with 2 on usage errors as documented.
