Because it's "only" broken for 4.x releases of FreeBSD which shipped
with gcc 2.95 (and will not be updated).

Yes, that's the build log for FreeBSD 4.11. This could probably be
worked around by explicitely depending on a newer gcc port to be
USE_GCC=        3.3

Relax, it's only broken for the older 4.x line of FreeBSD and it can
probably be fixed very easily by the maintainer.
