Asking a stupid question on a different list doesn't generally change
the fact that the question is stupid.  Have you read a single response
to your previous queries?  4.4BSD-Lite2 is an incomplete and highly
obsolete distribution of BSD that FreeBSD is based on (over a decade in
the past).  It's not something you can or should install.
