Yah, it fixes my problem but moves the problem on to someone else.  Of
course, the answer there is to also add the above line to the PHP build,

The other issue which someone broght up though is other platforms.  I
don't want to add something that only works on NetBSD.  Do we need to
check and only add this on NetBSD?  Perhaps we need a file that checks the platform and DTRT.
