Note that this was committed to OpenBGP on 12 August, so if you're running
a *snapshot* from after that date, you won't be affected. It made it too
late for OpenBSD 5.2 but has just been committed to the patch branch, so
building from a newly-updated source checkout tagged OPENBSD_5_2 will also
have this.

Looks like this is in 5.2.20121014 in FreeBSD ports too.
