FreeBSD will only allow root to bind ports lower than 1024.   further

mktap --port=80 --path=/usr/www --uid=65534 --gid=65534

says that --uid is not recognised.  last

man mktap 

says there is no manpage so I am not sure where to look for this.

so. if I can't run as root, how do I run

65534 was obtained from
>>> pwd.getpwnam ('nobody')[2:4]
