System: NetBSD prometheus 1.6 NetBSD 1.6 (GENERIC) #0: Sun Sep 8 19:43:40 UTC 2002 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	...the above doesn't really matter; but the relavent machine
	is an AMD64, not this i386.  (^&
	NetBSD/amd64 has a joy(4) interface and man-page, but lacks

	This causes, e.g., freeglut to fail to compile.
	Install NetBSD/amd64 and look for "joystick.h".
	Due to the closeness of the architectures, and the desirability of
	a common API, I assume that the i386 header provides all that is
	required.  It should suffice to just copy the header over.

	I do not actually have a joystick, so I cannot comment on whether
	this causes code to abuse the interface.
