Did you remove the IGNORE line from the Makefile? It looks like you may
have. The IGNORE line explicitly states what the problem is; you
shouldn't be able to build the port if IGNORE is set to non-null.
IGNORE= uses a UID registered to another port
And the UID is:
$ grep wwwadm /usr/ports/UIDs
$ grep :8: /usr/ports/UIDs
www:*:80:80:World Wide Web Owner:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin
UID 81 is reserved for qmail, which is obviously not what the port
should be trying to use. GID 80 is used by Apache and friends, although
if I remember right, the cricket user ends up having its default GID set
to the same group as what Apache runs as, so CGIs and other whatnots
have the ability to access cricket-specific files.
As a workaround, you could try setting CRICKET_UID=999 in make.conf or
during make time. This UID isn't listed in ports/UIDs, but may become
so in the future.
In general, yes, this port needs to have a UID added to UIDs and
should utilise that.
