I tried searching the mail archives for similar issues, but only found a reference to DB_CONFIG in reference to initializing a the rpm db.  Since this is a brand new install and there were no db files on the host, I figured it might apply.  It mentions mmapsize, which is definitely set, but offered no recommendations into calculating what to set it to.

You likely want to use the latest "production" rpm-5.3.11 release instead of rpm-5.3.4.
The @rpm5.org project does tick,tock monthly releases.

OK. In order to use RPM on FreeBSD as an "add-on" you will almost certainly
need to supply some dependencies.

There are two ways to do this:

1) capture the usual provides (like /bin/sh) in a virtual package and
install that first.

2) stub-in dependencies as needed. E.g. you will almost certainly have
to provide "/bin/sh" somehow, which can be done like this
	mkdir -p /etc/rpm/sysinfo
	echo "/bin/sh" >> /etc/rpm/sysinfo/Providename

You are likely to find that the two rules
	1) Every file requires its parent directory
	2) Every symlink requires its endpoint.
to be a bit bothersome as well. Stub those out in /etc/rpm/sysinfo
(or what ever path you have chosen) using
	echo "/usr/bin" >> /etc/rpm/sysinfo/Dirnames
	echo "/path/to/endpoint" >> /etc/rpm/sysinfo/Filelinktos

You need to specify a path to what used to be called /etc/magic until
FHS decided to rearrange everything and left the path UNSPECIFIED
(and so distros end-up all doing something different).

There's an AutoFu ./configure option to specify what path magic resides on.

From devtool.con %fbsd8x target
	        --with-path-magic=${PREFIX}/share/file/magic
