:> I dunno. I'd prefer that the binaries in /bin and /sbin generally
:> not be linked against citrus. It's a lot of bloat for no good reason.
:How do you propose dealing with file names that don't use ASCII characters then?
What does that have to do with mount_msdos? All file names devolve into
a string of 8 bit characters. If your shell allows you to specify them
as arguments mount_msdos won't know or care that they aren't ascii.
Is there a specific problem that needs to be solved by linking it that
would not also require linking every program in /bin or /sbin against
citrus? Because I really, really do not want to link every program
in /bin or /sbin against citrus... it would bloat those binaries
considerably and I am not going to allow them to be dynamically linked,
even if some of the other BSD dists have switched to dynamic linking
for binaries in the root filesystem.
