The files should eventually get automatically mirrored to the FreeBSD
ftp server at (and it's mirrors), so worst case users
get it from there, but it's always nice to get it from the originator.

Noted. I only used that source because it compiled properly (due to your
changes), which the source hosted at Google Code didn't. I can mirror a
copy on my server and point users to that if you like.

I'll work on that, thanks for the heads up. I hadn't seen a notice to
the parti-discuss list, which is where I saw your source originally.

It would just take someone writing a port for it and submitting it. I
will work on that, but if you beat me to it I won't be offended.

Thanks for the info!
