I wrote to Eric Anholt, who seems to be the man behind the port of DRI to
FreeBSD. He already had NetBSD on his TODO, but he replied to a message
I sent him telling me that he already started the work. I offered to help,
but, at least for now, I don't feel like the right person to help him with
hooking things to our kernel, since I have never done any kernel hacking.
Not that I cannot learn it, but if anyone with more know-how will also help,
we could have a faster start.
