A cost(=time)/benefit look on moving ctm from src/ to ports/ :
- No tangible architecture benefit (its not like purging an old driver
to makes kernel support simpler, or avoiding clashing libs etc)
- FreeBSD would shrink 0.028 % of the size of src/
du -s -k . # 1223922
du -s -k `find . -type d -name \*ctm\*`
dc 196 74 12 44 18 + + + + p 344
dc 344000000000 1223922 / p 281063 # then move 9 points
xcalc 344 / 1223922 # 0.0002810636
Those who would do the work might want to ponder if 0.028 % is best use of
their time, or if more fun & benefit to work on some other part of FreeBSD ?
