Hi Chris,

You can submit a bug report for one of the FreeBSD components in one
of two ways:

    1. Through email.

       You must run the send-pr(1) or the sendbug(1) utility on a
       FreeBSD system that has a working email setup.

    2. To post a bug through the web interface, point your favorite
       browser at the address:


Before submitting a bug report, please make sure you read the bug
reporting guidelines.  These guidelines, in the form of a short
article titled ``Writing FreeBSD Problem Reports'', can be found at:

Since the problem you describe seems to be related to ports, please
make sure you select `ports' as the `Category' of the bug report.
