	This would be the second case I know of; the other is "lsof".
	Other ports determine what the OS looks like by consulting
/inter alia/ /usr/include/ and /usr/local/include/, which are
by definition expected to match the running kernel+world.
	I have never understood why anyone would use anything else.
