Apache 2's sendfile revision detection for FreeBSD is somewhat broken

Yes, a > 4.6 binary dies when run on pre-4.6, as it uses a syscall unknown to
the pre-4.6 kernel.  It would be possible to rig apache so that it actually knew
which sendfile (new or old) to use so that post-4.6 binaries would work on older
kernels, but there's really no reason to bother.
