Hi, thanks for the patch, I added it slightly modified to the
cvs of libdvdread. I had a similar fix for FreeBSD that I noticed didn't
strdup the devname so I changed that too.
Should this patch be applied for NetBSD too, or are the /dev/r<names> still
in use there?
Please check the cvs version of libdvdread to see
if it is ok for DragonFly now. (There is a patch for DragonFly applied already
in bswap.h, is it still ok?).
