Ports are millions of years old. You should really try and run the latest
argus so you can (a) have an updated version, and (b) report bugs. It seems
that argus is one of those semi-maintained ports on both OpenBSD and
FreeBSD, and by the time they get updated in the -RELEASE branches,
everything is old.

Try source if you can. Else hopefully someone has insight; I haven't worked
with argus on FreeBSD in a year or two now.
