Well, ok. Seems another case of "different systems, different
philosophies" here for me.

My idea was that I was downloading the latest STABLE release of
FreeBSD and I assumed that the ports directory always applies to the
current STABLE version, noone should use a development version for
daily use, should one.

Besides, the ports website doesn't list at all what versions of
FreeBSD include this port as opposed to Debian, for example; I don't
want to start a flamewar though. It's not really user-friendly, is it.

I guess the minimum for my project will be FreeBSD 8.0 then.
