What should this tell me? My jail name starts with the FreeBSD major
version number as I posted in my original post (lower part).

But in lib/portbuild here you see:


    jname=j$(echo ${build} | sed -E -e 's|\.||')

    jexec -U root ${jname} /usr/sbin/service ldconfig start

    jail -r ${jname}

That a "j" is added in front of thejail name (no idea why) - it looks
like I've something missing here somehwere in the DB or the filesystem
which prevents me from using my old setup.
