Ports Tips, Tricks and Gotchas

This section of the Wiki is intended to have important ports' tips, tricks and various gotchas collated and presented in one place. It should offer information that is not just specific to the port's usage on FreeBSD but in general, from installation and configuration tips and problems encountered, with solutions, through important information about run-time and regular use.

Are you a new user of a FreeBSD port?

Please help us identify problems that new users may experience. Any problem and solution that is not immediately obvious or is unintuitive, or if there is any part of the port's installation, configuration or usage that you think should be particularly highlighted, please help us document it and add it to this wiki.
