I don't understand this much. On my Debian/Linux system, uname doesn't
return anything about Debian, only Linux-specific stuff. I'm not aware
of any sysctl (on Linux) related to debian or other distribution. So why
should Debian/NetBSD be different from Debian/Linux in this?

(Excuse me if this question is stupid. I never tried Debian/NetBSD, I
only follow its development with interest, because I like Debian and
don't like Linux.)
