yep, I am running Monotone at FreeBSD 4.11.

I did not use the port. Because I've begun to use Monotone before any
port existed. But, like you, I had to make some adaptions by hand. The
most important was, to install the proper boost library but build with
g++33 instead of the default g++ (i.e. 2.95.x). I believe boost was
not fully 2.95.x compatible.

After I had installed boost, I had to trick around to use g++33 for
Monotone too. I had also to adapt the makefiles a bit like you did.

But then all went smooth.
