Um, the above statement was incorrectly attributed to me. I cannot remember
who made it, however, and I do not think that anyone actually came up with
any code. It was really just a recommendation of what needed to be done to
make wine work with FreeBSD. And the current mmap problem with wine should
be version independent. It is a relatively new feature of wine.
