Okay, I was able to confirm when re-reading an old message posted
back in April
(http://lists.omnipotent.net/pipermail/lcdproc/2002-April/005618.html).

stable-0.4.4:
Checking in server/drivers/port.h;
/cvsroot/lcdproc/lcdproc/server/drivers/port.h,v <-- port.h
new revision: 1.6.2.3.2.1; previous revision: 1.6.2.3
done
current-0.5:
Checking in server/drivers/port.h;
/cvsroot/lcdproc/lcdproc/server/drivers/port.h,v <-- port.h
new revision: 1.12; previous revision: 1.11
done

Could someone using a HD44780 display and FreeBSD test this before we
release 0.4.4? Fredrik? Mark?

Best,
GFK's
