Attached you find a first stab at creating a FreeBSD port. As our mailing=
list is bitchy with attachments I put it to:=20
http://pf4freebsd.love2party.net/hatchet-port.tar.gz as well.=20
There are some things to note:
1) There is no port of DBD::Chart yet. This has to be resolved and a=20
dependency should be added.
2) I haven't tried it (as I don't have a box where I can without too much=
disruption of pending work).
3) The Makefile is nicked from mail/squirrelmail partly, one might want t=
acknowledge that when she/he submits it.
So, if anyone is willing to maintain this (I suggest that you do it=20
yourself, Jason) you should take the following steps:
1) Create DBD::Chart port (this is very straightforward and you can look=20
at any of the several p5-XXX ports in databases).
2) Add a dependency for this port to the Makefile.
3) Test!!! ('though I believe the most issues are taken care of already).
4) Put your email to the MAINTAINER line (keep the #Whom: please)
And a general note/request:
Can you please break the lines in Docs? These one-long-line things are a=20
hell to read!

Yupp ;) You might want to make an exception for security related problems=
I except this thread to continue at hatchet-users from now on.
