If you are tracking current, you might as well upgrade.  It is a
waste of time to make every version of current work with lsof and
all the kernel grovellers. It is enough that head works. To do this
right, one needs to check out and install each version of current
and compile lsof on each one. I have better things to do with my time;
if you don't you are welcome to fix it.
