	( Asking as I also have a DMA prob. to solve, at present
	needing hw.ata.ata_dma="0" in /boot/loader.conf to boot,
	(& interuptions on sound on 7-stable, though no ZFS here)).
	Not installed by /usr/src-7
	No /usr/ports/*/smartctl
Clues found with locate for ports:

  sysutils/munin-main	# Not really ?
  ports/sysutils/sensors-applet -> ports/sysutils/smartmontools
