Hi all

I hope you can help me.

I have a clean install of freebsd. I changed to /usr and made ports  
directory. Then I ran portsnap fetch and then extract. Then I changed  
to ports-mngmt/portmanager and did   make install clean.

When I try to install any port using either 'make install clean' or  
'portmanager www/lighttpd' (for example) I see hunks failed in  
stdout. As an exaple I saw one of these flas by when installing

Patching file using Plan A...
Hunk #1 failed at 2049.
1 out of 1 hunks failed--s

As far as I can tell I see similar errors no matter what port I try  
to install. Is this a problem?

Many thanks
