There are quite a few packages that can not be distributed on the CD/DVD sets
due two license restrictions. There will also be some ports that do not
successfully compile at the time of release.
The 4CD set is not large enough to hold all for the remaining packages. Only
the DVD distribution has all of the packages that successfully build at the
time of release and are allowed to be distributed.
