I feel that it might be the useful to the OpenBSD or blogging community in general, as BSD tutorials of this fashion for newbies and those unfamiliar are not all that common."

    unix$ mount | grep perl
    /usr/libdata/perl5 on /var/www/usr/libdata/perl5 type null (local, nodev, nosuid, read-only)
    /usr/local/libdata/perl5 on /var/www/usr/local/libdata/perl5 type null (local, nodev, nosuid, read-only)

    mount_null /usr/libdata/perl5 /var/www/usr/libdata/perl5

    works wonders for chrooted enviroments.

      Was the umount bug fixed in 3.4?

      I never went back to trying mount_null again after going through the trouble of copying a few directories myself.

        I know mount_null was broken in 3.2/3.3 and got "fixed" in 3.4. I havn't had problems with it on 3.4 x86.

          Good to know, hadn't seen much about null in particular since 3.4 was released.
