 } "Works on other OS" does not mean the program is correct (or
 } correctly ported).
      To add to this, ptrace(2) is not a POSIX interface, i.e. it
 is not a portable interface (which means that "works on other OS"
 is entirely the wrong criteria to be using).  The big question is,
 why is freeradius using it at all?  The real solution might be to
 rip it out entirely.
