Yes, just as Roman said: "This enables us...". No more, no less.

The default linux base port is linux_base-fc4. It should work fine
with 2.6 emulation. If someone want to override the default linux
port then OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT variable should be defined at

More information about how to update to a new linux base port
one may find at /usr/ports/UPDATING.
