Aus der ToDo-Liste fuer FreeBSD 5.3:

- truss support for ptrace
  In progress (Robert Drehmel)

Almost all process debugging tools have been updated to use non-procfs
kernel primitives, with the exception of truss(1). As procfs is considered
deprecated due to its inherent security risks, it is highly desirable to
update truss to operate in a post-procfs world. Dag-Erling Smorgrav had
prototype patches; Robert Drehmel is developing and testing patches now.
Support for system call tracing has been added to ptrace().
