I believe so, I have someone testing a patch and they're going to just
double check that the flags I said FreeBSD wants are correct.  If they are
reported to work I can keep them in our local patches for 2.2.5 and in
future versions just have the test for open and free.  That sparks my
curiosity though, what will netbsd want?  In anycase that was a long "yes"
