thank you for your feedback! the missing 'managed' at the end was added to
pkg-message.in (master). also shaped a bit the information on this file;
got things
from "pluggable-transports/obfs4.git/plain/README.md".

some boxes are running freebsd 11 and a mix of Tor 0.3.{0,1}. the bleeding
edge box
is running code from FreeBSD head (current), and Tor master (alpha-dev);

% file /usr/local/bin/tor
/usr/local/bin/tor: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (FreeBSD),
statically linked, for FreeBSD 12.0 (1200038), FreeBSD-style, not stripped

% tor version | head -1
Aug 04 10:39:02.479 [notice] Tor (git-b2a7e8df900eabe4)
running on FreeBSD with Libevent 2.1.8-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.2l, Zlib 1.2.11,
Liblzma 5.2.3, and Libzstd 1.3.0.

% obfs4proxy -version
