Do you have details?  FreeBSD's sendfile was broken for some versions (i.e. 
<4.10 with threading).  We already have configure checks in APR for some of 

I find it amusing that Linux-centric developers feel special in that they

FreeBSD-using developers just add in checks to isolate the issue on their 
platform.  =)  -- justin
