just tried out Scala 2.8.0 svn r17711 revision with Diablo Java
HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.6.0_07 and it works awesome on the
FreeBSD 8.0 200905 i386 snapshot.

However, while running the 'ant test', i noticed that java 
tops out at 274MB heap size with 31 threads (falls to 29 threads 
after approx 5min and stays there) .

Interestingly, the state in 'top' is shown as 'ucond'.
Is this pthread_cond_wait_ or something, where the VM thread is
deadlocked ?

Any work around to this issue ?

I also noticed that the recent ports checkin is Scala 2.7.3

May be, Scala 2.7.4 can be fast tracked to the ports.

Can somebody point out to a template for the ports directory
tree layout ? Is there a location to place bleeding edge ports?
