I'm having issues installing databases/firebird20-client. It's failing with the error:
==> Please do not build firebird as 'root' because this may cause conflicts with SysV semaphores of running services.

but when I run `make` in the port directory, without root, I get:
cannot create /usr/ports/databases/firebird20-client/work/ipcs.pre.build: Permission denied

due to the port directory not being writable. Simple fix is probably to change the permissions of the port directory, but this probably isn't a good fix.
cd /usr/ports/databases/firebird20-client
make install clean
