.. but don't worry .. its not the only thing that is broken in the ports 
tree for 9.x ... basically for many things now the ports tree is 
unusable and quarterlies are unusable because they contain known 
security issues in most cases which will never be backported "Because 
its too hard"..   According to the same email thread the answer to the 
question there was to migrate to 10.2-BETA2 in the production environment.
