It's probably not the most elegant way of working, but this works for 
me. In my nginx.conf the poudriere related bits are

         location /pkgs/ {
             alias /usr/local/poudriere/data/packages/;
             autoindex on;
             autoindex_exact_size off;
             autoindex_localtime on;

         location /logs/ {
             alias /usr/local/poudriere/data/logs/;
             index  index.html;
             autoindex on;
             autoindex_exact_size off;
             autoindex_localtime on;

             default_type text/html;
             types {
                 text/plain log;

That's with poudriere's BASEFS=/usr/local/poudriere

My repo URL is


and my URL for monitoring the build is


where ${JAIL} is the poudriere jail I'm using. If you use -z SET for 
different options, replace "default" with ${SET}.

You might want to add




to your poudriere.conf as well, so it can give you helpful pointers on 
the build machine. Note there's no slash before ${BASEFS} in those URLs 
as it begins with one already.
