Perhaps specifying the OS release version the issue was noticed on

"FreeBSD (2011)" rather than "FreeBSD"?  The drawback of this might be
that someone may assume that the issues are particular to that release

Hardly anyone reads the raw Texinfo so comments in the Texinfo do not
seem very useful for the common reader.  If the reader knows that the
current version of FreeBSD is 12.8, then he might want to check to see
if claims made about 8.2 (totally defunct by then) are still
applicable. Comments in the raw Texinfo from the authors regarding
versions when the issue was checked (or rechecked) would be useful.


OK, given your considerations, I've updated my patch with the attached
squash-in.  The amended patch is attached too.  Let me know if it is
good to apply now.

I think it's good enough now; go ahead and push, and if we come up with any further tweaks, it can be separate patches.

Thanks again for chasing this down.
