You are right, I tried it and now I have plaintext readme files installed.
It is so confusing to me, because I had:
html_directory = no
readme_directory = no
in my main.cf and HTML readme files were installed, but plaintext were
The whole port install magic is confusing, because I don't expect some
installed configuration file may affect re-installation proces. And if
this is expected behavior (installed files depending on values in
main.cf), then plist should be generated with respect to this behavior.
Thank you for your advice!
