After running a manually installed Squeezebox-Server for years, I finally stumbled over audio/squeezeboxserver.
I installed it today, and after worming my way through 

/var/lib/squeezeboxserver        , 
/usr/pkg/share/squeezeboxserver  , 
/usr/pkg/etc/squeezeboxserver    , and 
/var/log/squeezeboxserver        , 

with none of these locations having been mentioned or documented in any way, tried to start the squeezeboxserver.

There is neither a 


nor a 


Next thing I noticed was a NEWLY started mysqld-instance next to my already running one. This is very inconvenient, to put it mildly.
And then the next thing was a crash:

Can't call method "log" on an undefined value at /usr/pkg/lib/squeezeboxserver/CPAN/Log/Log4perl/ line 189.

After this, there's no squeezeboxserver anymore. And it happens everytime, I launch the squeezeboxserver.

I have fallen back to my manually installed one, at the moment, which neither starts any new mysqld-instance, nor crashes with logging-problems, but of course, that is no solution.

- install squeezeboxserver
  # cd audio/squeezeboxserver
  # make install

- copy pkg/share/examples/rc.d/squeezeboxserver to /etc/rc.d/
- edit /etc/rc.conf and add the line
- start squeezeboxserver
  # /etc/rc.d/squeezeboxserver start

- wait. The crashing won't take long.
Add documentation about paths, configuration etc.
Add at least the docs provided by the original package.

How to solve the crashing-problem is unknown to me, as I have no idea what exactly causes it. It only happens in the version installed via pkgsrc, not in any version installed from the vendor.
