Sure, you're right.  But with last week's FreeBSD-specific changes, we now
have two ("to" above should have read "two") relevant issues fixed: one
related to forking on -CURRENT, the other to sound, and at least two users
now have applications working properly that didn't use to work.

Think positive! :-)

(Seriously, it has been my experience that while I try to keep Wine
buildable on FreeBSD and make portability fixes, it often was specific
users with specific applications/needs, like Travis now, that managed to
locate and debug some nasty issue.  Now, if we had more guys like Travis!)
