Well, I have sysstat_9.0.6.1-2 running on kfreebsd-amd64. Without
having examined all options, the only deficiency I know is its
inability to produce disk statistics. On the other hand, the most
recent version 10.0.2-1 was changed to "linux-any".

I gather sysstat would require compatibility files in linprocfs
to run properly on kfreebsd-any.
