If you want to try and track down how to fix the error I would start 
with these two checks first:

1) Make sure the standard FreeBSD package works, otherwise it is a 
problem in either the porting process or the application code itself and 
you will want to talk to the port maintainer to try and track down the 

2) If the standard package works, then it is definatly something in the 
PBI format that is the issue, and we need to move on to the 10.x PBI and 
see if that works. There have been a significant number of improvements 
to the PBI format, so the issue(s) might already be fixed with the new 
code. (I am going to test this soon for you, since I am already setup 
for it).
