If it works on RELENG_7 I am assuming that it should work on CURRENT  
and on AMD64.  On my amd64 laptop I have tried to build the port  
several times and consistently get the following error with a  
redefinition of msleep.

In file included from gspca_core.c:39:
error: "msleep" redefined
In file included from  
                  from gspca_core.c:39:
@/sys/systm.h:305:1: error: this is the location of the previous definition
In file included from gspca_core.c:52:
error: missing terminating ' character
*** Error code 1

This followed a rebuild of linux-kmod-compat.  Any suggestions on  
getting it to compile?  FWIW, I have the same problem with  
multimedia/linux-ov511-kmod.  I'm trying both is hope to get my  
builtin web cam working.

port 3 addr 2: high speed, power 500 mA, config 1, Acer CrystalEye  
webcam(0xa101), SuYin(0x064e), rev 1.00
