No luck. I was compiling from source using make and letting dependencies
be resolved automatically. Something seriously got messed up and I feel
like an idiot. I was following the handbook and was in chapter 5 where
it was recommended to install subversion for ports tree management
(sounded good to me) and I executed, from /use/ports/devel/subversion/
'make install clean'. It was doing good up until doxygen/graphviz, it
seems. I have no easy way of getting the error messages here (on the
Ubuntu side of the laptop I'm installing on) as Ubuntu's ufs tools suck.

I'm wanting to get away from Canonical telling me what I'm going to use
and back to maintaining my own system. I decided on FreeBSD because of
stability and security, but I'm stumped and feel like a moron. So much
for good starts (I used gparted to resize the Ubuntu partition so I
could fit FreeBSD on here).
Yours in Christ,
