This is true if the port crashes on every FreeBSD system it
is tried on. However if your system is the only one that is
crashing then it's most likely something specific to your
system. Many times hardware problems with hardware, or device
driver bugs, can hand back garbage to the kernel and cause a
panic. You should include a dmesg printout so we can see the
kind of hardware your running.
Since the leafnode+ maintainer obviously is running
leafnode he can confirm if there's any history of crashing.
I've also compiled and installed leafnode myself with no ill
effects, although I don't currently use it, I use NewsCache.
Note that you need to CC freebsd-gnats-submit at FreeBSD.org
and leave the subject line intact in order for your responses
to be made part of the audit trail.
