The CVS commit in question says that the breakage was reported by
pointyhat (FreeBSD package building cluster):
In fact, pav@ included the specific compiler error. I wonder if there
was possibly a bug in the early 8.0 OS at that time (13 Jun 2009) that
caused the build failure.
If you are able to build and run successfully under 8.0 now, I suggest
filing a PR with a patch to unbreak the port.
Hope that helps,
