Hope this one is more to your satisfaction --

I wrote it with the intention of (eventually) getting it merged, so
Linux distributions could just compile DMA out-of-the-box (well, after
installing BSD yacc). There are some questions concerning BSD<->Linux
differences that I raised on the bug submission, since I'm not sure
about those parts of the changes I made.

Your input is welcomed -- this is my biggest change to a BSD-style
program to date, so don't assume I know what I'm doing :)
