Hello Jerry,

 Please excuse this if its a false-positive, but my bot radar is going off
with this post.
Can you please be more detailed on your issue, with how bots are these days
can never be too sure. Very few things you are mentioning seem to link to
you are reporting or lack enough detail to make my bot radar go off, and
what you
are more detailed about doesn't seem to be about the original problem.

You wrote that you edited make.conf, what are the full contents, what
and where is the location of the file you edited?

You wrote that you ran poudriere, what command did you run exactly?

You wrote that there was a vulnerability, what was the vulnerability?

You've mentioned a bug that seems to have no relation to this whatsoever.

Best regards,
Richard Gallamore
