Today I noticed something interesting...

If you SSH to the jail you get this when you try to make fetchindex:

fetch: /var/ports/INDEX-8.bz2: open(): No such file or directory

But is you jexec to the jail as root from the host then it fetches the
index without any problems.
It may be related to EzJail only because of  the way it sets up the
ports tree, the basejail and all that.
But it may help other people with similar problems when using ports
make search in jails.
