This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The error message mentions /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache, and that's where the invalid value. Can you try renaming or changing that file (as it's under /var/cache/, it should be safe to delete it, but better be on the safe side...). It looks like, for some reason, ddclient.conf is being cached under /var/cache/. – njsg Jun 4 '12 at 12:54
I recommend opening a new question about the new issues. – hexafraction Jul 31 '12 at 14:04

Assuming you have p5-IO-Socket-SSL-1.48, there was a problem with the p5-IO-Socket-SSL-1.48 FreeBSD port. Upgrading the port to 1.49 seems to have solved the problem.
