I played with this a bit more. It turns out I was real close to having
it working initially. I only needed to ifdef out one more statement in
the sysdeps/freebsd.c file. According to my interpretation of the
original freebsd.c file, the usage of /compat/linux/proc/meminfo is a
fallback and should not normally be executed. Anyway, I got it working
without using linprocfs.
