Hmmm...strange happenings here...

I tried installing fwbuilder (a tool for building firewalls - works with
ipfilter and pf) from ports. This is the first time I've seen this sort of

  root at sonic:/usr/ports/security/fwbuilder> make
  >> fwbuilder-1.0.11.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.
  >> Attempting to fetch from http://us.dl.sourceforge.net/fwbuilder/.
  Receiving fwbuilder-1.0.11.tar.gz (1385279 bytes): 100% (ETA 00:00)

  ===! Running aclocal
  aclocal: not found
  *** Error code 127

  Stop in /usr/ports/security/fwbuilder.

What exactly was that all about? A broken port perhaps?

best regards,
