I just tried this on FreeBSD 5.4 and 6.0 and it seems to work fine, with 
or without GNUREADLINE enabled.

./bootstrap doesn't actually need to be run with the port, because the 
ports infrastructure handles autoconf et al. natively:

USE_AUTOTOOLS=  autoconf:259 aclocal:19 autoheader:259
ACLOCAL_ARGS+=  -I ${WRKSRC}/infrastructure/m4

So every time make clean && make is run from the port directory, it will 
do it all for you.

I'll be uploading a new tarball of the port sometime today, too, to cut 
down from the 29 patchfiles to just a few. The rest will be done by sed 
replacements in the port's Makefile (where ${REINPLACE_CMD} is set to 
/usr/bin/sed -i.bak in bsd.port.mk):

         @${REINPLACE_CMD} -e 's,%%PREFIX%%,${PREFIX},' 
         @${FIND} ${WRKSRC} -name "*.pl" -exec \
                 ${REINPLACE_CMD} -e 's,/usr/bin/perl,${PERL},g' {} \;
         @${REINPLACE_CMD} -e 's,/usr/bin/perl,${PERL},g' \
                 ${WRKSRC}/bin/bbackupd/bbackupd-config \
                 ${WRKSRC}/bin/bbstored/bbstored-certs \
                 ${WRKSRC}/bin/bbstored/bbstored-config \
         @${FIND} ${WRKSRC} -name "Makefile.extra" -exec \
                 ${REINPLACE_CMD} -e 's,perl,${PERL},g' {} \;
         @${REINPLACE_CMD} -e 's,perl ,${PERL} ,g' \
                 ${WRKSRC}/test/bbackupd/testfiles/bbackupd.conf \
