Bug#557247: freebsd-utils: please add kdump (ktrace is useless without it)

Hmm, wasn't aware of that, I've always had both on my systems. :)

In the meanwhile:
| kibi@kbsd:~$ dlocate kdump
| freebsd-hackedutils: /usr/bin/kdump

It can still be found on debian-ports:
 1. http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian/pool-kfreebsd-i386/main/f/freebsd-hackedutils/
 2. http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian/pool-kfreebsd-amd64/main/f/freebsd-hackedutils/

> (In the alternative, please port strace to kfreebsd. ;-)

We take patches. :)
