I upgraded to the latest ftpsync script this week (after years of old
ones running). The only GNUism I removed was a call to "hostname -d"
which does not exist in BSD. Removing it wasn't a problem as it only
tests for the mirror domainname to see if it's debian.org or not. It's
the if test line 249 of ftpsync, and it could easily be replaced by a

if [ "x$(hostname -f | sed "s/`hostname -s`\.//")x" != "xdebian.orgx" ]; then

line which works on BSD too.
