Hi Saifi,

Coincidentally, I have been working on the Scala port PR today, and I
also saw that it has been updated to 2.7.4.  I modified the PR patch to
upgrade to that version.

I'm in the process of testing out the port on the various platform and
OS version combinations.  I expect to commit it to the tree in the next
few days.

If there are any FreeBSD-specific patches that should be added to the
port to fix the problem that you noted above, please send them to me.
I'm no expert on OS internals, so I'll leave your question to the good
folks on the -current mailing list.
