I don't have it in front of me right now, but at least on 1.8.x (I =
haven't tried 1.6.x), it's necessary to create that file based on the =
FreeBSD 11.1 version and add a systype for 11.2 into some other file(s) =
(a grep for fbsd should help).  It was actually pretty straightforward =
and it seems stable (at least the client; I haven't tried the server).

Perhaps the FreeBSD maintainer can update ports soon...
