FreeBSD 6.1-PRE/AMD64, Thunderbird, Enigmail (64Bit)

I ran into trouble using Enigmail 0.94.0 with the lates Thunderbird
1.5-client compiled natively from ports collection on a FreeBSD 6.1-PRE
box running a pure amd64 OS.

PGP backend is the latest GNUpg backend found in ports.

It is impossible to me encrypting a test email to myself or configure
keys out of the keyring. As often as I try to send an encrypted mail, I
receive 'Enigmail: Failed to access Enigmail service". It seems the
service Enigmail doesn't respond or is existent on the box, but I got
all the buttons in Thunderbird.

The only thing not tested yet is to make GNUpg behave like OpenPGP.

Any ideas? Is that a 64Bit issue or simply a FreeBSD-non-working or
simply a stupid confi issue?

Thanks in advance,
