If a package fails to build under a fake root environment because it 
tries to write outside the $PKG directory, it's most definitely a bug in 
the port. I've committed fixes to these two ports in the new Subversion 
repository, which will hopefully be put into use soon. I don't think Per 
is going to update the old CVS tree anymore.
