Done, welcome Dirk! Some rules of portrookies:
Don't use the pserver checkout method, use
cd /usr/ports; cvs -z3 -d:ext:dinoex at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/portrookies co rookies
before adding a port, TEST IT:
cd /usr/ports/rookies/<portname>; portlint -A
cd /usr/ports/rookies; make checksubdir
cd /usr/ports; make index
add the port:
cvs add `find <portname> -name CVS -prune -o -type f -print`
cvs commit Makefile <portname>
don't cvs import ports.
Sorry, standard disclaimer.
All rookies are required to have a PKGNAMEPREFIX that starts with `rookie-',
so perl modules must have `rookie-p5-'. Otherwise FreeBSD rules apply.

Otherwise Categorie rookie would be illegal.

I had to make up *some* name, and portcurrent?

bsd.port.mk shouldn't like you CATEGORY. I chose PKGNAMEPREFIX,
because it's easier to find in pkg_info.

Welcome again. Current population: 2.
I hope I didn't mess up the permissions, I'm not a SF.net wizard.
