Why?  rump is "standard" in NetBSD so that's probably not going to fly.
It'd be like saying "require.progs = ls".

I'd not keep commented code in the tree.  There is no point: by the time
FreeBSD gets rump (if ever, but it'd take a really long time regardless),
the borrowed code may have significantly changed from upstream.  And if
rump is never imported, this code will remain commented out forever.

Then, like above, remove the code... unless the tests should work in
FreeBSD but don't yet, in which case marking them as "expected failures"
and accompanying them with a PR would be better.
