Which version of FreeBSD are you building on?

I'm constantly building EMBOSS on FreeBSD - several builds are usually
required every time I change anything to the FreeBSD EMBOSS port - and I've
not seen the build breaking, ever.  (Though I'm doing another build now to be
sure.)  I do all my development and testing on 5.0-CURRENT these days,

BTW, the FreeBSD EMBOSS port now includes the EMBASSY applications MSE,
PHYLIP and TOPO.  Upon installation the user is given an ncurses-based
full-screen menu in order to decide which of them to install.  I'll add MEME
to the port soon as well, and EMNU when it's available.
