Hi, all--

To recap: the port as submitted works fine, but the name 'clean' broke 
the generation of the ports INDEX.  I believe the port was renamed in 
CVS via a repocopy to 'clean_', while Oliver Eikemeier kindly looked 
into and produced a patch to which seemed to resolve 
the bug with generating INDEX.

What I should do next to address Bill Fenner's scripted email...?  :-)
