Dear all:

Just an FYI that all the parts are now in place to use GCD (libdispatch) on 
FreeBSD 8-STABLE.  You will need the following:

- FreeBSD 8-STABLE snapshot from at least 2009-11-01 (r198732)
- FreeBSD libdispatch port from at least 2009-11-11

Do the upgrade to the 8-STABLE snapshot first so that the port can find the 
required kernel features.  As a reminder, you can find FreeBSD/GCD port 
status, quick start guide, and general information here:


I have updated it to reflect 8.x support.  Thanks are due to Stacey Son and 
Stanislav Sedov for their work to make this happen!
