*waves hand* - I'm the port maintainer. With the latest round of updates
I created a test target in the port skeleton that runs the release
If you want to run the debug tests you'll have to do it within the work
./runtest.pl ALL debug

Ports are normally built as root, unless hackery has been done to allow
a non-root user to write to /usr/ports (or $WRKSRC has been moved
somewhere else), so unfortunately this will mean that when run from
ports the test suite will normally be run as root.
