Yes ... all of them complained about it.

crazytrain% grep semsys /local/src/lib/libc/gen/*.c
/local/src/lib/libc/gen/semconfig.c:/*  return (semsys(3, cmd, p1, p2, p3)); */
/local/src/lib/libc/gen/semctl.c:/*     return (semsys(0, semid, semnum, cmd, &semun)); */
/local/src/lib/libc/gen/semget.c:/*     return (semsys(1, key, nsems, semflg)); */
/local/src/lib/libc/gen/semop.c:/*      return (semsys(2, semid, sops, nsops, 0)); */

Obviously the /* */ came from me..
