Adding AFP support to FreeBSD

Since we use both Mac OS X, Windows and Linux/FreeBSD in RedAnt, we need to configure our NAS to serve our files using AFP (Apple's way of networking). I use http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/2.0/htmldocs/ for reference ...

cd /usr/ports/net/netatalk
make install

cd /usr/local/etc

Edit atalkd.conf and add your network interface on one single line (sis0 in our case)
Edit AppleVolumes.default and add directories to be AFP shares

(For AppleVolumes, see http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/2.0/htmldocs/AppleVolumes.default.5.html)
