i think it's this one:
Correct. I needed to check my home system to double check.
My home Ubuntu system showed that it was installed from a repository,
and I found rpms when I poked at http://rpm.pbone.net. I'd assume the
various *BSDs have it too in their ports collections.
As long as you don't leave quoted "blank" lines (which this message
has), it'll handle quotes pretty well.
