On a side note:
When does GNUstep get rid of the procfs stuff? If GNUstep is supposed
to be platform independant, you CANNOT rely on something that is only
available on ONE particular platform (aka Linux).
As I pointed out earlier, the implementation of procfs on various UNICES
differs greatly.

Hmm, well let me think... GNUstep is a volunteer project, so in general...

... maybe when someone offers a patch which implements an alternative which is more portable without breaking the ones that work and that is remotely maintainable? ;-)

But in this particular case I thought we already have quite a bit if machinery in place in config/procfs.m4 and config/procfs-exe-link.m4 with HAVE_KVM_ENV and HAVE_PROCFS code in NSProcessInfo in particular for FreeBSD. So which dependency specifically are you referring too? Could you give us a pointer to the bug report, please?
