The only way that seems to work for me is not to use libkvm on FreeBSD systems without proc-fs support. I disabled kvm usage by hacking the configure script and GNUstep works again. Can we add a flag like --without-kvm to configure in

Wouldn't it be cleaner to make configure check the following: If the platform is FreeBSD, and /proc does not exist, automatically disable kvm. This way we won't have hordes of folk complaining (rightly so) when trying to compile GNUstep under FreeBSD, because they have to explicitly use --without-kvm

Yes, that would be even nicer. The only thing is that you can't check for /proc because this directory exists. But it is empty, so you have to test if there are
any files under proc.

Would you mind to implement the change in configure? I'm not used to
configure scripts but i can test the change on my system.
