I two ports share the same code base, but install different files, then a
metaport or similar could be clever. See for example
databases/postgresql83-(server|client). The postgresql83-server depends on
the client. The client can installed without the server. Similar to
OpenAFS, hence. Now, they have the same source tarball, so the -client port
just sets a few parameters and then uses the postgresql83-server port as a

Works almost exactly the same as described for postgresql. :-)
