It shouldn't mean that, but I've no explanation. I don't find it in a lot
of places, but see no mention of it at http://pointyhat.freebsd.org.
Not sure where to go with it then, now. I'm not subscribed to ports@,
perhaps I'll try a 'send-pr'. At worst I'll be flamed by some overworked
admin ;-) But, generally, FreeBSD isn't like that, so I'm really not so
worried about it.
Don't vote - it only encourages them!
