     Every bit helps.

     That's one of the significant differences between NetBSD and
FreeBSD as well.  And, since the FreeBSD port of DAHDI is SMP ready,
this is one of the things that would need to be worked on.

}  Sure. I'll happily test the new state of things.

     Okay, the build is done and it has been committed.  I didn't
bump the PKG_REVISION since there was no binary package to be
changed.  If you could test it and let me know how well it works,
that would be appreciated.
