When I checked /usr/ports on the outer system it was empty, I
must have forgotten to include it at install time. After
performing 'portsnap fetch extract' on the outer system, a new
ports jail with the ports tree included worked as expected. I
presume that the ports checkbox in the new jail wizard causes
the ports tree from the outer system to be copied into the jail?
If that's the case, I have some objections: That doesn't take
into account the possibility of the outer ports tree being
missing or modified, and there is no warning for cases like what

jail, but that might be a related or unrelated issue.

I've just improved this, so that it will checkout ports from
portsnap instead of just copying from /usr/ports. Also, it will now
display warnings if it fails. Ditto with system sources. <br>
