Yes, if not too much, it would be high advantageous to provide this
capability in the base compiler - particular an OS with SMP
scalability as a primary goal. I have never compiled an OpenMP program
on DFBSD, so I was making an assumption here.

Also, for example, Imagemagik can be build to take advantage of
OpenMP. I am sure there are others, particular when you get into the
math and science packages.
