Quake 3 and Punkbuster

I have the latest version (quake3-1.32b_4) of Quake 3 server running on a
FreeBSD 4-STABLE box. The server runs fine, but it seems the Punkbuster
anti-cheat software that is now bundled w/ Quake dosent want to load.
This is what I've done. The server runs as a normal user. All files and
executables are owned by that user. I have a .q3a/ DIR which contains the
config files and the "pb" directory (~/.q3a/pb). I ran pbweb.x86 to update
the the server Punkbuster (PB) files and added sv_punkbuster "1" to all
config files. But the server does not start PB. I then used rcon to access
the server from a Windows Quake client and enabled PB with pb_sv_enable
and wrote the permanent change with pb_sv_writecfg. I then rebooted the Q3
server and still no PB.
Anyone running Quake 3 under FreeBSD and have Punkbuster running that
could lend some assistance?
