Now step 2: For every port mentioned above, add hamradio at the end
to their categories and run a diff -u on the ports Makefiles.
Also add it to the definition of VALID_CATEGORIES in Mk/bsd.port.mk
and do a diff -u on that too.
Step 3 is to use send-pr (use a change-request to ports) with a
request for a new cateogry, attach the patches and submit it.

virtual category and which is bigger than the average virtual
