Jennifer and I have moved to the user space initialization
of the network stack.  My recent commits added
31 of the 56 files found in the current cpukit/libnetworking/libc
plus a VERY trimmed down version of the stack initialization
routine which sets IP address, netmask, etc.

There are some of the libc routines in freebsd-userspace
which do NOT currently compile. I left them in but disabled
compiling them until we fix whatever the issues are.

I solved the <freebsd/FILE> where you wanted <FILE> problem.

At this point, initializing the "lo0" interface fails because
we are "not owner". This requires opening an AF_INET
socket. Once this works, we should be able to initialize
the fxp0 interface and try to ping the target.

Help in porting more of the libc support is appreciated.
