I got confused by net/freerdp2 vs wip/freerdp.

I've actually now removed the wip one, my upgrade was not really
working due to some PLIST/compile issues on NetBSD anyway, and
net/freerdp2 is a newer version than original wip/freerdp 2.0.0rc4.

I'm now looking at what is going on there. I confirmed it's taking the
'argument' path, i.e. one requiring timerfd_create(2) on Linux, or

Apparently FreeBSD has this in ports without special patches for this
code, so I'm trying to figure what exactly triggers the failure on

Eventually I want to update net/freerdp2 to the newest version, and
make it work on macOS too, but that after it actually works on NetBSD.
