Notes on libieee1284 on OpenBSD/i386
------------------------------------

For direct port access on OpenBSD/i386, the library uses the i386_get_ioperm 
and i386_set_ioperm syscalls.  These can only be called as root, so currently 
only root access is supported.  They also require the linking of the i386 
library.  

This would not be a problem, except that for no good reason I can discern, 
there is no shared version of libi386 included in the base OpenBSD install.
The result is that programs using libieee1284 will have to manually
link libi386 when compiling on OpenBSD.  

Thanks to Rob Pearce for providing the hardware for OpenBSD and Solaris/x86.

Enjoy,
