Thank you for the heads-up.

I can adjust for that. This was original git code from newvers.sh that I
had let be what it is now and really holds no extra meaning to me unless
it does to someone else?.

Easy enough to change 137,13 to a space instead of equal sign.

Questionable whether the '+' sign at 143,14 would cause any problems so
I am testing that out now and will submit another followup patch.

Does not make any sense to me why a port would configure using (uname
-v) for identifying its environment. More specifically there should not
be anything more needed than the output of ( uname -rms ) and maybe on
occasion '-n' and __FreeBSD_version.

I have had thoughts before about a patch for uname that also outputs the
ABI or __FreeBSD_version but really don't see a need for that since it
can already be identified by kernel headers or through the use of
sysctl(8) or some system call.
