Just curious, what is the reason behind having different package names for 
the port versus the package. It seems confusing to me. Also, since the port 
just installs a binary, couldn't it just install the package? It would 
cause less confusion, don't you think?

BTW, I'm extremely happy to have diablo out, and especially that the amd64 
platform i supported already. Thanks a lot, guys!
