FreeBSD ports... usual practice is

cd /usr/port/*/<portname>
make install

Having install RT that way and coming back to RTFM 2.0.4 I looked in the 
README and it says just 'make install' however by force of habit I typed 
'make' and noticed that it called install, so figured that it is just a 
shortcut ... big mistake...  All I am saying, it might be worth 
mentioning that 'make' will not install/do everything needed for a first 
time install.

No but all the errors we unable to AUTOLOAD errors.'cannot find module'
