I'm running a number of jails (created using ezjail) on a FreeBSD 6.4 server (RELENG_6_4). If I do a "uname -a", I get the following...

FreeBSD machine.domain.tld 6.4-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 6.4-RELEASE-p2 #0: Fri Jan 9 00:01:13 GMT 2009 r...@machine.domain.tld:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MACHINE i386

In any case, portaudit recently let me know that some of my installed packages have been updated so I set the kern_securelevel setting in /etc/rc.conf to "1" and rebooted the machine.

I then, as root, executed "portsnap fetch update". Portsnap downloaded the snapshot file, but when it tried to extract it, it failed and I was presented with the following...

   portsnap: Directory is not writable: /usr/ports

If I execute "ls -al /usr/", one of the lines I get back are as follows...

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 19 Jan 22 20:07 ports -> /basejail/usr/ports

I'm at something of a loss as to why this is happening. I'm logged in as root, and the above line clearly shows I have full permissions. If I do a "ls -al /basejail/usr/", one of the lines I get back are...

   drwxr-xr-x  68 root  wheel  1536 Jan  9 23:53 ports

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening?
