Labeling Linux as a BSD derivative is ... *strange*.  Linux is the happy
bastard that doesn't fit anywhere -- and it seems that some Linux
developers actually take pride in the fact that their programs run
nowhere else. 

OK, so perhaps today you have to put up with me -- I spent a couple of
hours trying to compile H. Peter Anvin's derivative of the OpenBSD tftp
daemon under Solaris. (And that one was the most promising of the three
tftp daemons I tried -- the others were even more riddled with Linuxisms
and GNUisms.)
