Thanks. I'd found a bit about that after I sent the message. Things  
worked fine with 0.2.1--except that mongrel_cluster's restart did not  
work properly if nothing was running, which cost me an hour a day  
earlier before I realized what was wrong. That's was my motivation to  

If you have any simple instructions about how to get this working on  
FreeBSD, I'll be very grateful!
