Already done :)

(Other than BSDOS.x11.dist.)

I did the work almost two months ago. And also fixed a few packages for
BSD/OS portability last month. I waited for freeze to end before
committing BSD/OS support. And I committed earlier today.

I chose "BSDOS" (and later I noticed that sendmail itself uses BSD-OS in
its builds).

Last month, I built perl, openssl, apache, postfix, sendmail and many
other packages under BSD/OS. (I just remembered that the openssh doesn't
work although it installed fine last month.) I am now building all the
"supported" packages as defined in doc/STATUS.

Do you use BSD/OS? Can you test?

Later we will have an official announcement (and about AIX too).

Any answers to my previous email questions?
