| OK, scratch that. So who changed the macro in such a stupid way ?!
The who (or even why) is hardly material now, but __NetBSD_Prefreq__()
has been rendered useless - it should simply be deleted.
If macros are really needed (rather than just testing __NetBSD_Version__)
then something new that's actually documented can be created (and then
used the way sysutils/monit is attempting (incorrectly - it has the same
problem that Obata Akio just fixed in xorp)
I suspect the root problem with __NetBSD_Prereq__() was that it was
never documented - I think the NetBSD 3 version of it is actually correct,
and now it is incorrect - for its original intended usage - just when
it started to be used for other purposes, and didn't work, it was "fixed".
