Whether or not it's part of FreeBSD is immaterial. It's part of the
distribution that comes from FreeBSD, and is treated differentlyh from
locally installed software (whether written locally or by a third
party) in every case *except* where it installs - and that's only
because it's installed in the wrong place.

In other words, "It's not part of FreeBSD" is a rationalization.
