The use of shared libs in the /bin and /sbin directories was added Aug
17, 2003 and you needed to specify WITH_DYNAMICROOT during a
buildworld.  After the dynamic root became standard it was changed to
NO_DYNAMICROOT, but /libexec/ didn't move again.

The WITH_DYNAMICROOT option was added after 5.1-RELEASE, not sure why
the port wouldn't build on your system.
