ok i think i understand the meaning of /usr/ports/distfiles/ i also
think pkgfiles would be a beter name for it :P

So there is only 1 kind of ports namely this one

not for example different amd64 source code ports or alpha source code
ports ... they al point to the same source code.

Is there a config file were i can chose a ftp mirror server ?

Does the ports system use perl or is perl needed to use ports ? If so, why ?
