which is "better" - /dev/fd or FIFO

Some ports, notably shells/bash, have a makeoptions config where you can
select "enable use of /dev/fd". But there's no explanation given why
this is advantageous or not, or if there's some kind of risk, in a
freebsd context [1]. It's not enabled by default. Please can anyone explain?
