Dear FreeBSD developers/port maintainers,

first of all, thank you for your work. You are doing great things  
providing  a state-of-the-art OS.

I was thinking the following:

In our infrastructure we use some daemons (bind, dhcp, openldap) that  
must run into a jail for security reasons.. do you think that having a  
keyword JAILED=YES in the Makefiles of ports would be useful ?

Something like make install PREFIX=/path/to/jail JAILED=YES will be  
difficult to implement ?

Best regards,
