This question is mainly directed to the developers. I am building an RPM 
package of NSD 2.3.7 for use on CentOS 4.5. I notice that one of the 
options available during the configure phase is "--enable-mmap". The 
release notes briefly mention it as being useful on Solaris, but don't 
talk about any other OS. Since it is not enabled by default, I'd like to 
ask whether there is any benefit to be had on enabling it on CentOS.
