I too wondered about this. I just put it down to a problem with the port 
that would get fixed at some point; so, is it something that won't be 
possible on FreeBSD? I also have a similar problem with tmux: the 
vertical pane divider doesn't accept the colours defined in the 
configuration file, and even with no configuration file it shows as 
though the pane have split a second time when the haven't. Same in xterm 
and console.
