There is something different about the FreeBSD ethernet drivers, 
apparently (or BPF, or something).  Mike Hibler and I were helping a 
fellow from Texas recover his HP-BSD system when we noticed it.  Scott 
Reynolds sent me a patch that DTRT #if defined(__FreeBSD__).  However, I 
have lost the patch (and I forgot to check it in to the tree).

Scott, Mike, anyone: if you have the patch, I'd sure appreciate it if 
you'd send me a copy :-)
