        NetBSD 4.0 requires libvolume_id, not all "unsupported systems"
        are alike.   The change to the Makefile in rev 1.30 broke
        building on NetBSD 4 - reverting to Makefile rev 1.29 fixes
        it just fine.

        Build (attempt...) sysutils/hal on NetBSD 4.0

        The easy fix (for NetBSD) is to just revert Makefile rev 1.30,
        but apparently that change is needed for Darwin, and it would
        be absurd for libvolume_id to keep coming and going based upon
        who complained last (or who yells loudest).   Instead, find a
        way to work out if it is needed or not (ideally not by checking
        "if it is Darwin then no, else yes" but by actually seeing if
        it should work) and include it when it is needed, and exclude it
        when it is not.
