Hi.  I only subscribe to the digest.  Please CC me.  I know it's 
protocol but sometimes it does not happen.  <sigh> The double edged 
sword of digest mode.  TIA...

I'm trying to build Java and I ran into the problem where linprocfs has 
to be running/mounted.

I found the suggestions but it is not working.
Here is what I get:

linux_enable="YES" is coded in rc.conf and it does not appear to 
complain at boot time.

It may be something simple but I do not get it.
