Thanks for the extensive answer. Sorry for not replying earlier.
I guess that the good news is that it sounds like I can do what
I want, but the bad news is that I have to sift through quite a
bit of info.
Alas, there is no pkgsrc package for it. (^&
Maybe sometime this weekend I'll see if I can build it by hand.

Okay. Thanks. I'll take you up on that; here are a few offhand:
* If I ever want (or for some reason need) a traditional phone,
what would I be looking at by way of hardware to add to the
computer? (I am familiar with none of this...)
* What kind of CPU would be required? My fastest system should be
more than sufficient (AMD64), but every 15 seconds or so it seems
to have a system-wide freeze for a second (this started around August,
last year, give or take, and persists with a 3.99.1 kernel that I
built a couple of days ago). The next fastest computer that is
directly on the 'net is an old 450MHz (I think) Pentium III.
(Inbetween, I have an 800MHz Athlon that is off of the 'net...
I thought that I read something about NAT causing problems for
this, though, and that computer is not likely to be put directly
on the 'net.))
