The port build of win4bsd will not build on 7.2 because you have first
to rebuild the freebsd kernel with option SCHED_4BSD. win4bsd-1.1_3
requires the traditional 4bsd scheduler. Good possibility this is also
true for 7.0, 7.1 and 8.0
Gave up on testing win4bsd because of performance impact on server from
using traditional 4bsd scheduler. OMHO this port needs to be updated to
function using the new scheduler.
