Unfortunately, I forgot to mention this in my previous mail:
Use the COMPAT_12 option when you are building a new kernel
and are running a system that was update previous to 10/10.
If you don't, all old, statically linked binaries that use directory(3)
functions will get a 'bad system call' error. Dynamically linked binaries
should work fine either way.
