Not to derail this thread much more, but BSD is like the antithesis to System V.  BSD was developed orthogonally at Berkley while AT&T worked on System V.  Sun specifically used a BSD derived kernel for Solaris until they bought the rights System V.  

None of this is really relevant anymore as most Linux and BSD distributions use an amalgamation of both SVR4 components and BSD components in varying places.  XNU is actually a microkernel (mach based), which is very much unlike the monolithics of FreeBSD or Linux.  OS X adapts most of its unix userland components from FreeBSD's code base.  

None of this is your point, of course.  Yes there is an SMB module on there as well as an NFS kernel module.  It's running OS X, it's just missing the userland applications I believe.
