     I just upgraded to 10.2 two days ago.  When the installer was ready
to get to work ("Click Next for an Easy Install" or some such message) I
noticed the "Options" button and tried it.  That is where you get to
decide whether to install the "BSD subsystem."  I included that, but
decided to save a few hundred MB by not installing fonts and
localizations for languages I do not use.  (Famous last words...)

     I do not remember where, if anywhere, the "BSD subsystem" is
