It looks like I was able to build this version of chromium last night
on my build server I use for pkgng packages:

> pkg info chromium
chromium-27.0.1453.81          Mostly BSD-licensed web browser based
on WebKit and Gtk+

I am running this build now (to compose this email actually) - i can
try to dig up some build logs if that would be helpful.  i don't have
any special build arguments for this port.  here's the uname for this
build box:
