Hi Dale,

I'm pleased to hear about your successful build!

OpenBSD 7.2 and things look good there too.

Unfortunately, the FreeBSD and NetBSD hosts are still unreachable.

Quite right.  I've applied this change and pushed it.

Not a surprise--Peter's stuff is solid and stable.  :)

Thank you for the report.
