Bug#502729 and the mysterious freebsd-utils package

  I'm the maintainer of procps and are not subscribed to the BSD list,
so please include me in the replies.

I received this bug report saying there is another sysctl program out
there in a package called freebsd-utils and the procps init script is
calling it and failing.  It would of been nice that someone told me
about this program appearing (unusual too, because I have had some
patches come out of the kfreeBSD project).

Anyhow I cannot find this package anywhere! Packages.d.o doesn't have it
and what is real strange is that ftp.d.o doesn't have it either.

And yet the submitter says at [1]:
  On Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, /bin/sysctl comes from package freebsd-utils

So what is going on?  Why aren't more of you complaining too? :)
