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
[pete at ranch ~]$ uname -ar
FreeBSD ranch.nomadlogic.org 9.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE #0
