  Log:
  The linux_devtools-7 port includes binaries which are licenced under
  the GNU General Public License.  The following is the portion of
  the license which grants permission to distribute these in binary
  form:
  
            3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on
          it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the
          terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of
          the following:
  
              a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding
              machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under
              the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily
              used for software interchange; or,
  
              b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least
              three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more
              than your cost of physically performing source distribution,
              a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source
              code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
              above on a medium customarily used for software interchange;
              or,
  
              c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the
              offer to distribute corresponding source code.  (This
              alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution
              and only if you received the program in object code or
              executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection
              b above.)
  
  [...]
  
          If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
          access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
          access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
          distribution of the source code, even though third parties are
          not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
  
  Since this port does not satisfy these conditions the license does
  not give us permission to distribute the binaries.
  
  I brought up this issue with portmgr but after 73 days I have seen
  no response.
