You may get this error while using /usr/ports to install any package in FreeBSD.

 root# make install clean
On FreeBSD before 6.2 ports system unfortunately can not set default X11BASE by itself so please help it a bit by setting X11BASE=${LOCALBASE} in make.conf.
On the other hand, if you do wish to use non-default X11BASE, please set variable USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE.
*** Error code 1



As a solution you can add ” X11BASE=${LOCALBASE}” in /etc/make.conf as the error message says. Now, installation using ports will work fine.
