Mkspiffs on FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE fails


I’m using pio on FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE and when trying to upload my firmware to an esp8266 I get:
PackageManager: Installing tool-mkspiffs @ ~1.200.0
Error: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement ‘~1.200.0’ for your system 'freebsd_amd64’

I’ve downloaded and compiled mkspiffs and have the mkspiffs binary copied to /usr/local/bin/ but it still tries to download tool-mkspiffs.

Can I copy the binary somewhere on my local filesystem to make it work or can I help fixing the tool-mkspiffs package?

Thanks in advance,

I’ve fixed it by placing the binary in ~/.platformio/packags/tools-mkspiffs/ and addingthe package.json from the 1.102.0.tar.gz from
Service End for Bintray, JCenter, GoCenter, and ChartCenter | JFrog.

I’d upload the package but I don’t have access to a web or ftpserver.

Please compile this source code and send binary to
