I've run into this sort of thing myself. IMHO, the problem is perhaps a bit of overzealousness on the part of developers to get people to "upgrade". Apparently 6.0 is considered too obsolete to maintain on mainstream servers, not that I really know as I have nothing to do with any of that. If you want to run the package that was released with 6.0, apparently ImageMagick-18.104.22.168.tbz, you can try the URL <ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/old-releases/>. -- Walter M.
