When making changes such as this, please remember to consider
other platforms. For example, if a program tries to DTRT but fails,
it should be fixed cleanly, rather than brute-forced into the
NetBSD way.

If no such checks exist, a clean way to pass the device path would
be a good approach for pkgsrc portability.
