Hmmm... I wonder if it mightn't be an idea to have a "see also" comment 
in a port where there are other ports available that provide very 
similar functionality?

As far as I can tell, this does _exactly_ the same thing as 
security/pam_ssh_agent_auth -- the principal difference being, pam_rssh 
is written in rust, and pam_ssh_agent_auth is written in C.
