*BSD support in 6.8.3

6.8.3 is nearing release, and we have an outstanding bug affecting the GHCi
on the BSDs:
We need someone to help out with this. The patch in the ticket apparently
works, but can't be committed as is because it isn't correctly #ifdef'd and
will presumably break other platforms. Also it needs to be tested on
OpenBSD/NetBSD in addition to FreeBSD.
I don't have access to a *BSD machine right now, and I don't have the time
available to set one up. If someone can donate a temporary account then
that would be helpful, but most helpful would be if someone could work with
us to get this bug fixed in time for 6.8.3 (i.e. the next few days).
Otherwise, we have to release with the bug still in, which would be bad.
