At least on my system, it seems to be part of the Linux ABI, so
maybe the module in question is designed for Linux?

	% locate libnsl

There's no "libnsl" in the ports, and "nsl" search results don't
seem to bring up something appropriate.

My suggestion would be to install the Linux ABI and have the


in your /etc/rc.conf. The linux.ko kernel module should be loaded
automatically, or maybe you already have it in your kernel config.
