Thanks for the pointer.

That section must be new since the 8.1 handbook that I have locally.*
I did check there, and also looked for a newer version on the 10.2
memstick, but it seems not to be included in either the live FS or
the "doc" distribution set :(

*  My Internet connection has been _really flakey_ lately,**
   so I didn't check the online version.

** It works sporadically, but is very slow even then -- email
   eventually gets through -- telco problem, nothing to do with
   FreeBSD.
