I think I've tracked down exactly what happened.  A while back 
someone sent some FreeBSD patches to fix the VFS modules WRT DYNEXP 
flags.  The flags that FreeBSD needs are DYNEXP="-Wl,--export-dynamic"
Later on someone from openbsd posted something to fix their problems, 
which would be DYNEXP="-Wl,-E".  Looking through configure.in, it 
appears that only DYNEXP="-Wl,-E" are used or am I not looking in the 
right place?
