lang/expect and astro/weather from ports both install different /usr/local/bin/weather, without warning the user of the overwrite. I found out because a script using astro/weather stopped working after I installed lang/expect.
Compile and install astro/weather. Run /usr/local/bin/weather.
Compile and install lang/expect. Run /usr/local/bin/weather and note that it is a different program.
One, or both files should be renamed. Maybe astro-weather and expect-weather?
