Only ever done this on linux (we do a lot of linux hosting with plesk at
work,) we dont use SWSofts install if at all possible as its flaky as
anything. Although its all been pretty much automated now and i dont
have to touch it much, from what I remember we install the prerequisites
manually (well via yum but not using their installer,) then we go
through the needed components and install them individually. SWSofts
installer and updater used to break things on a regular basis. If I get
a sec I'll have a quick look at the FreeBSD version.
