Dear port maintainers,

included is a list of ports that write something after

  .include <bsd.port.mk>
  .include <bsd.port.post.mk>
  .include "${MASTERDIR}/Makefile"

or set MASTERDIR without being a slave port.

These are detected by version 2.4.8 of port devel/portlint, you can find 
referencs in the FreeBSD Porter's Handbook at: 


In most cases this is an attempt to work around the structure of bsd.port.mk.

Even though this may be an easy solution for the needs of your port, please 
think about an other way to do it.

Essentially all tools that work on the whole ports tree assume a certain 
uniformity in ports Makefiles, which goes beyond just compiling and installing 
without errors.

Non-adherence to standards makes it hard for people dealing with the ports 
tree as a whole, and hinders progress because small changes in bsd.port.mk may 
break your port.

If you do not know how to fix the port, ask at ports at FreeBSD.org or don't 
hesitate to contact me.

If there is currently no other way to do what you need for installing the 
port, this is an area where the bsd.port.mk has to be improved, and it is 
important that we get aware of this fact.

When there are only some comment lines at the end of the Makefile, please move 
or delete them. There is not FreeBSD standard that recommends ending a 
Makefile with '#EOF', and if not all ports do this it is of no use. I'm sorry 
if it hit some of Alan's ports with that, no disrespect intended.

Please excuse the inconvenience
