You've all lost me here ... what exactly is the problem? PostgreSQL works
under FreeBSD 4.x jails without any modifications, so how is PostgreSQL
itself currently broken? It seems to me that the problem is with FreeBSD
5.x's jail side of things, if the same daemon runs fine under 4.x, but,
nto under 5.x ...
