(Just recording what we said on IRC)

So far -bsd haven't even properly decided on what libc to use.  We
need to have a lot more working Debian/*BSD before we think about
writing an installer for *BSD.

Still, keeping the portability at maximum would be good.

(-bsd Cc-ed, so they can voice their opinions, if any.)
