While there aren't many FreeBSD people using Wine, I can't see the Wine
folks wanting to spend any time jumping through hoops for a negligible
In fact, it's possible that the code to change FreeBSD's mmap address

required to make the registration code optional. I need to do more work
to confirm that, but that's my gut feeling at the moment.
