System: FreeBSD canoe.dclg.ca 5.3-BETA7 FreeBSD 5.3-BETA7 #0: Fri Oct 8 21:52:19 EDT 2004 dgilbert at canoe.dclg.ca:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/CANOE i386

Tested on i386-4.10, i386-5.3B7.
	Crashes no matter the command line.  Trivial "rain -t"
	cd /usr/ports/security/rain; make install
	./rain -t

There is a rumor that the malloc for packet sizes is bad, but this
is unconfirmed from a web site.  Rings true as linux binary runs fine
on BSD ... and our native malloc makes nasty things happen.

I suppose setting this compile to turn off the nasty fills might
make things work.
