It looks like an omission in the top-level Makefile.in 'dvolser' target -- 
there is a conditional on SYS_NAME which calls out architectures to build 
dvolser for and fbsd is not included.

If I go to src/dvolser in the build tree by hand and 'make davolserver', 
it compiles just fine.  A subsequent 'make install' in the same directory 
should do the right thing.
