I hadn't, but I have now. Thanks.

I think a solution might be to have a Makefile and a Makefile.linux
and a Makefile.FreeBSD and a Makefile.simple and have Makefile
recursively call the appropriate one.

The problem, it seems to me is that those who want to do out-of-tree
modules are not served at all by the existing Makefile because they
typically have no idea of what changes are needed.

I believe that I can come up with an equivalent FreeBSD make file.
