So, every time the FreeBSD VM system comes up, somebody from NetBSD
says that "it has portability problems," and invariably somebody from
FreeBSD says "no it doesn't."

Since it's impossible to prove the negative in this case, and they
seem to think that they don't have portability problems would somebody
(hopefully somebody who's been making the portability-problem claims)
actually point out some of the portability problems?
