Hi Chris.  There are a few patches that need to be applied to nano in 
order to get it to compile cleanly under FreeBSD.  I found a copy of 
these at

Or, there is also a prebuilt package of nano 1.0.8 for FreeBSD in

This issue should be resolved for version 1.0.9.  Basically the 
development team has to decide whether to add a check for strcasestr 
when compiling nano (which used to be broken under Linux), or if that 
does not happen just rename nano's strcasestr function to something 
else.  If I don't get any feedback on the development list, it's likely 
it will just be the latter.  Regardless, you should be able to get 1.0.8 
for your system and 1.0.9 should compile out of the box for you.
