No worries - the FreeBSD integration isn't well documented. I can't find my old notes right now, but I suspect that the reboot was needed because devd doesn't rescan the existing devices when you just restart the devd process (it acts on kernel events, such as when a USB device is plugged in).

My understanding is that the ports tree is used by the FreeBSD maintainers to build the binary packages, right? Theoretically, the default configuration for the port should be the same.
