Personally speaking, the port setup is a bit out of date.
It hasn't been updated in quite a while (whereas the FreeBSD ports
environment has changed) and it actually refers to v2.0 of bpalogin 

I suggest you grab the unix source directly and use it instead:

% fetch http://bpalogin.sourceforge.net/download/bpalogin-2.0.2.tar.gz
% tar zxvf bpalogin-2.0.2.tar.gz
% cd bpalogin-2.0.2
% ./configure
% make

Personally the 'make install' had a few issues for me.

Personally I would use:
% install -m 755 bpalogin /usr/local/sbin
% install -m 600 bpalogin.conf /usr/local/etc
% install -m 755 bpalogin.bsd /usr/local/etc/rc.d/bpalogin.sh

Then edit /usr/local/etc/bpalogin.conf to set relevant options.

% vi /usr/local/etc/bpalogin.conf

You should be able to start it up with:

% /usr/local/etc/rc.d/bpalogin.sh start

Note I have not personally used the software, but 2.0.2 compiles
cleanly on my 4.9 system and I expect it will compile ok on 5.2 also.
