FreeBSD spirit 10.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE #0 r260789: Thu Jan 16 22:34:59 UTC 2014     root at  amd64
Port : /usr/ports/textproc/highlight

Problem : when highlight run from CLI with parameters -S or --syntax [languageToParse] the program return always "Unknown source file extension"

Example :
nunzio at spirit>echo "ciao" | highlight -Shtml
highlight: Unknown source file extension "html".

Bug reason : duplicate sub-folder on /usr/local/share/hightlight/langDefs/langDefs

I hope it's useful for others freebsd users.
install ports
Solution : put all files from /usr/local/share/hightlight/langDefs/langDefs to /usr/local/share/hightlight/langDefs 

I suppose this can fix by editing Makefile.
