apr and php-gtk have been reverted, at least for the WANT->USE autotools
stuff. I don't see an "apr-thread" in the tree.
The newer version of bsd.autotools.mk, which needs to go in almost
immediately after the split, which fixes a few bugs, brings in support
for autoconf259/automake18 (well, any version actually), and a
USE_LIBLTDL flag instead of a direct dependency on devel/libltdl, can be
With that, rather than get involved in yet another pointless flamewar,
consider this notice of an (at least) 1-month sabbatical from me, whilst
I decide whether or not its worth putting up with the armchair generals,
who could do a whole lot of good by converting ports away from anything
but the newest libtool/autoconf/automake.
