gdb53 expects *BSD to have the support, and miscompiles if it doesn't. I d=
agree with you completely that it is not strictly necessary. =20
However, it does make NetBSD more consistent with the other BSD's and less =
a special case. Its was for that reason that I thought that it would be be=
to include the support. I'd think that we'll end up with less maintenance =
we are less different.
And of course, I will be clearing any future alpha commits with you.
