Anywhere in the Porter's Handbook, naturally. I'll be
updating docs this summer, you can probably leave it to
me if you don't find this urgent. This thread will
remain starred in my inbox until resolved.

Yes, I always have a few jails around built the "canonical"
way described in the manpage, but I always have trouble
building some ports. Sometimes it's just perl and hundreds
of other ports install OK, sometimes dozens of them report
It clearly requires investigation from my side to tell you
more, but it seems it's not that simple to recreate
pointyhat's success and failure cases. Maybe there are some
subtle details about pointyhat's jails that need to be added
to jail(8) manpage.
