[nycbug-talk] Reentrant syslog for FreeBSD

I was wondering if any folks would like to help me test a patch that  
makes syslog reentrant on FreeBSD. I've done a little bit of testing  
and so far, so good.

The patch essentially takes OpenBSD's reentrant syslog functions  
(openlog_r, closelog_r, syslog_r and vsyslog_r) and makes the  
available in FreeBSD. Hopefully this will make building of packages  
such as spamd under FreeBSD easier since the source shouldn't require  

To apply the patch as root:

cd /usr/src/
patch -p0 < /path/to/patch
make buildworld && make installworld

Feedback is very much appreciated.
