I think that this will make it harder for you (and other KAME-s) to
keep the code in sync.  I think that we should try to minimize the
differences between the incorporated code and the kame-code.

Of course we should try to minimize the number of #ifdef's in the KAME
code - preferably by removing gratious differences between BSDs and by
factoring out system dependencies.
