An attempt to clarify some apparent confusion: Despite theit very similar
names, *BSD are not different distributions of the same software like 
Linux distributions are. NetBSD and FreeBSD are distinct operating systems,
with theit own kernels and userlands that diverged from a common ancestor
23 years ago.

This is why you should not take FreeBSD behaviors for granted on NetBSD, 
and vice-versa.
