Ports are beeing extracted to thier work directory with the uids/gids of the files inside the archive. When files inside ie. perl-5.8.8.tar.gz have uid/gid ie. - 1013/1013, a problem with quotas may arise. When quotas are set for id being used in that archive, it may result in disc quota problems.
Set low quota (ie. 5mb) for long range of uids, ie. 1000-2000, then try to install some port that extracts a archive with original uid/gid's, like lang/perl5.8 (on 6.2-STABLE). An error about disk quota may appear.
I suggest setting ports to extract archives with root user id and not with the the uids/gids in the archive.
