  The skype port has been upgraded to version This requires a 
  change to run. After upgrading, please do: "sysctl 
  from a terminal. Also add: "compat.linux.osrelease=2.6" to your
  /etc/sysctl.conf  to make this change at boot time. Also, 
net/skype-devel has
  been removed from the ports tree. All skype users are encouraged to 
update to
  the latest version.

I personally jumped for linux_base-f7 and linuxolator 2.6, I have 
installed and linux_dri
and new skype seems to work perfect.

I only once saw some warning about inotify call not implemented or 
something like this ...
