I think Randy mailed the change required to this person.  What I am going
to do when I get a chance is add a insecurecoredump sysctl for FreeBSD so
they can patch the kernel and enable it on the fly.  If I'm lucky, I'll be
able to convince someone that it is a good thing(tm) to be able to stick
in the FreeBSD source tree so life is easier in the future.  I really
can't think of any workaround that doesn't require kernel changes, other
than having the server not do a setuid().
