 Following r206129, FreeBSD no longer has a hardwired st_blksize
 so the first problem should now be reproducable on FreeBSD.
 The scenario where I found the bug was the perl 5.8 DB_File test
 db-hash.t on a ZFS filesystem.  The problem should therefore be
 reproducable on 9-current with r206129 as follows:
 1) Set WRKDIRPREFIX to a ZFS filesystem.
 2) cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
 3) make
 4) cd $WRKDIRPREFIX/usr/ports/lang/perl5.8/work/perl-5.8.9/t
 5) ../perl ../ext/DB_File/t/db-hash.t
    (it's possible perl will need to be installed for this to run)
 This should result in a core dump following test 21.
