Facebook’s HipHop Virtual Machine in FreeBSD ports

Great news for PHP administrators and site architects – the Facebook’s HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM) version 2.1 is now available in the FreeBSD ports tree. The port is available under lang/hiphop-php and is limited to the amd64 architecture.

HHVM is an open source virtual machine that can act as a standalone server that can run PHP sites. With it’s just-in-time compilation approach PHP sites receive a reasonable speedup.

Special thanks to vanilla@FreeBSD.org who has helped me making this port work. Our patches have been submitted to Facebook via GitHub.
