:Hmm, but he's trying FreeBSD 4 -> DragonFly 1.2, something which seems 
:to have been working at some point.

    It's possible that the CVS surgery we've done over the years has messed
    up 1.2 with regards to building from FreeBSD.  Even more likely, changes
    in FreeBSD have probably made portions of the old 1.2 build incompatible.

    Some of the FreeBSD folks keep refering to DragonFly as something
    relative to FreeBSD-4 and that probably causes a lot of confusion.
    DragonFly was forked from FreeBSD-4 a long time ago, but holds very
    little in common with it these days.
