Well, forcing people to use an option just because they use OS foo or
bar sounds hackish to me. I guess I would prefer doing a configure check
for FreeBSD and doing magic for them on the fly, so they don't need to
use -K.

This sounds good, too, if -K's only reason to exist is this problem

You mean the current patch I tested the other day, right? So what'd be
the correct solution, again? I'm a bit confused by -d, -K, non-FreeBSD
and FreeBSD at this point of the mail. What would be the long term,
clean solution?

Thanks for investigating David!

Oh, I dunno how many of you nano-devel subscribers are subscribed to
help-nano too. Sometimes users ask questions, and it'd be cool if a few
more people subscribed to help helping them.
