Default Wifimgr

I'm trying to compile this:
http://opal.com/freebsd/ports/net-mgmt/wifimgr/

It barfs on eaccess. I have severely limited skills so I'm stumped.

The developer says its good on any BSD based system. I thought I'd give it a try in compiling.

Wireless network configuration across BSD's is not uniform, such an idea reeks of portability problems.

Don't use a GUI for network configuration.

Wifimgr works great on FreeBSD. I hoping it would work on NetBSD because I travel a lot and being able to add an entry to wpa_supplicant.conf easily would make life easier.
