Mkay. How NetBSD handles this situation? Or obex doesn't work at all there?

I know. I meant that there is possibilities to take either older bthcid
from NetBSD CVS or hcsecd from FreeBSD and port this one instead of
latest bthcid from NetBSD. The port isn't trivial in either cases -
bthcid uses libevent we don't have in the base (seems that we are the
only BSD without this?) and FreeBSD (obviously) netgraph.
