I have a feeling we have been here before and I modified NSProcessInfo
approrpiately to use the kvm stuff to do it. The code only ever worked
on FreeBSD though, as you needed to be root to use it on other systems
such as Solaris. I havent tried it under FreeBSD 5.X, only 4.X, so
maybe something has changed in the 5.X API which makes it stop working.

Does FreeBSD 5.X not have a /proc that could be used for this kind of
thing though, rrather than dabbling with those kvm calls ?
