Ya, as is often the case, some packages in the FreeBSD ports 
seem to be fiddled with by the time they get to the user.

Just recently I had an issue with alpine that-a-way.
Compiling it from the maintainer's source yielded a copy that 
did not have the bug I encountered with the ports package.

Thanks for the quick reply!
