It would perhaps be nice to have an understanding of what was going on
in the situation Jeff described before ploughing on with this:

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25718

""
(I remember the pain when www.apache.org got screwed by picking up a
FreeBSD update that changed the sendfile() semantics.  There was no
compatibility sendfile() interface at the time to make the old Apache
code work.  Maybe it is only some intermediate maintenance levels of
4.5(?) that will break without the code in cvs today???)
""

presumably the #if must be extended to include __DragonFly__ to actually
fix that issue, also?
