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.
