Jailing net/skype

For the archive:

I finally got skype working in a jailed environment. The hardest part was to
define the ports needed using trial and error.

Here are the leaf ports installed in my jail:

===>>> skype-,1
===>>> xauth-1.0.2
===>>> xorg-fonts-100dpi-7.3
===>>> xorg-fonts-75dpi-7.3
===>>> xorg-fonts-cyrillic-7.3
===>>> xorg-fonts-miscbitmaps-7.3
===>>> xorg-fonts-truetype-7.3
===>>> xorg-fonts-type1-7.3
===>>> 8 leaf ports

xauth is needed to enable X-forwarding in ssh. The fonts are needed to avoid the
core dumps mentioned earlier in this thread.

I hope somenone finds this useful.
