The /boot directory is on the / partition, with 755 permissions at

I haven't looked into this in too much depth yet.  The error message just
says it's marked as broken, though.

I didn't build the port.  It got installed as part of the OS install
process, which surprised the heck out of me.  I wonder if I accidentally
selected something I did not intend to install when I was selecting what
sources to include.

In any case, after building the locate database, no uwacom shows up in
the system at all.

I'm not sure this makes any difference when there's no wacom kernel
module at all.
