    I stand corrected -- it appears to come with FreeBSD since the 4.x
    days: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/c...ly/017624.html

    I've still never heard of it though, and it's not mentioned in the
    applicable manpages either.

    But there's an amusing part, too:

    You posted this exact question on freebsd-questions 1.5 years ago,
    where you were running FreeBSD 6.1. So this problem has little to do
    with your 6.3 --> 7.0 upgrade.
