I disagree! This option gives useful information sometimes. Just because it
can't work on _some_ platforms is no reason to disable it on _all_ of them.
I'd be much happier with either
1) Disabling it on platforms where it is known to not work, or
2) Enabling it on platforms where it is known to work.

I think 2 is probably the better option, since that way we won't have to deal
with user issues whenever a new platform where it doesn't work is discovered.

Given 2, we know that it works on linux, I would assume that it works on
FreeBSD since sussman uses FreeBSD, and so it presumably works on the other
*BSD's too.

Everything else is suspect, but since most of the people working on Subversion
use one of those platforms, it still buys us a lot of coverage.
