Well, you guys warned me, but I wouldn't listen. :)

The installer wants to do all sorts of things like:

cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/meminfo

These are easy, I just made symlinks to the Linux versions in /compat/linux.

However, it wants to do stupider stuff like:

cat /proc/swaps
cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

And the killers:

error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or directory (2)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
ipcs: illegal option -- l
usage: ipcs [-abcmopqstyMQST] [-C corefile] [-N namelist] [-u user]

I installed db3 port, but that didn't help. And I have no idea how to
fix the ipcs problem. Perhaps I can somehow install the linux version
of ipcs?
