It is ok. I also think that the never version of smartmontools have a 
lot of nice features, like doing long offline tests etc. periodically.

Will you update the freebsd port?

I dont know if this is a FreeBSD issue but I am not able to activate 
periodic 4hour offline tests in my drives.? do you have such problem?
