If you're running an old master or not up-to-date RELEASE and you plan  
to build DPorts yourself, please make sure you have a sh(1) version  
with 'pipefail' supported.
You can find out with:

     # sh -c 'set -o pipefail'

Update your sh(1) by running as root:

     # cd /usr/src && make all install clean

That's the quick way, the recommended way is updating your  
installation as specified in build(7) manpage.
