Dear Ports Maintainers and kuriyama,

emulators/freebsd-kmod has a typo in pkg-descr, where it says "lodable"
instead of "loadable".

In addition, I have done the work necessary to port
emulators/freebsd-kmod to Gentoo/FreeBSD.


The ebuild contains a few improvements on the original FreeBSD port
where we copy only the parts of SYSDIR that we need to build the module.
We also do hardlinks instead of copies when Gentoo Portage builds with
user privileges.

The NEEDSUBDIRS part of the ebuild was written by naota AT gentoo.org as
part of Gentoo's review process. I have permission from him to upstream
the improvements we made on the port. Feel free to adopt any
improvements in the attachments in that bug report.

Lastly, I have sent an email to gentoo-dev AT lists.gentoo.org and
gentoo-bsd AT lists.gentoo.org requesting that the FreeBSD specific
parts of the portage tree be relicensed under terms of the BSD-2
license. With a little luck, it will be possible to upstream
improvements made in Gentoo/FreeBSD without any hassle in the future.

Yours truly,
Richard Yao
