irssi-devel + irssiproxy broken

I built the STABLE irssi-devel port with proxy (ie, irssiproxy)
enabled, and configured the client according to the documentation on
the site http://irssi.org/
However, the irssiproxy silently fails each time. The .so module is
loaded successfully, and I get no errors about port binding, but
netstat never reveals anything listening on the configured ports, and
all client connections are immediately rejected.
After several non-consecutive hours of blaming the documentation, my
own actions, googling, and cvsup'ing my ports and trying again,
I decided to try it on another system (Debian/testing).
I copied the ~/.irssi directory straight across to the linux box,
fired up irssi, and a netstat revealed it was already listening on the
configured ports. The subsequent attempts to connect to it from
a remote box were also successful.
The googling (web and usenet) revealed a few obscure errors where the
irssi port would fail to bind to the desired ports with an error
message. I was unable to find any solution to this issue posted, and
my experience never yielded any binding failure messages.
To the owner of the irssi-devel port, is this a known issue? Is there
a fix or work-around?
