Thanks for pointing out where TFM was located. A "man -k emul" turned
up nothing of any value.
The next question is, is having a separate freebsd directory tree
really a good thing? Before the libc-1.3 era, the netbsd and freebsd
were compatible enough that one didn't have to enlarge ones working
set by having two copies of all the dynamic libs taking up memory.
