The test suite fails on kfreebsd[1]. For other BSD-systems, this package
is currently able to be build in two ways:

1. PS_USE_SETPROCTITLE -- uses the setproctitle function in BSD. This is
not the case for Debian since that function does not exist.

2. PS_USE_PS_STRING -- this is how the current Debian package uses it.

There's also PS_USE_CHANGE_ARGV and PS_USE_CLOBBER_ARGV, but I don't
think these are useful.

It looks like PS_STRINGS doesn't have any effect on kfreebsd.
