I talked to Nikola last year about this. It wasn't really clear to him 
why this happens at all. I tried the last years with 10.4-STABLE and 
11.2-STABLE same outcome. His jail must be different to the libs the 
ports system is providing.

Shouldn't the case beause the ports system is OS-independent.
