I tried Dave's patches on FreeBSD, since he decided that it was easier to 
tweak the DragonFly build to follow the FreeBSD path, and there were no 
ill-effects. The changes were made in FreeBSD-specific code, and won't affect 
any other platform.

Yep, everything was nicely wrapped for conditional compilation.

Tobias, feel free to send FreeBSD questions|problems to kde at freebsd.org, and 
we will endeavour to maintain that part of the codepath for you. I'll try to 
monitor any changes you make in the !FreeBSD paths, and make the necessary 
changes for FreeBSD. Hopefully Dave will do the same for DragonFly.

I'm not entirely sure that the differences between DragonFly and FreeBSD 
warrant a separate directory, possibly it would be better to tweak the 
configure logic to let DragonFly follow the FreeBSD directory, and make 
conditional changes in there.
