That was Chris and he said that it doesn't work anymore.

That was me. Chris was right with his response and the problem is that
we (as in the developers) normally don't have to time to check if the
FreeBSD 4 build breaks or not. There are some changes which are known
to break compatibility and we currently work around them. It normally
just takes someone to hit the trouble and tell us :)
