For starters: one real BIG problem (at least for me) the ports system
still has is a lack of DESTDIR support. We can

  make installkernel DESTDIR=/foo
  make installworld  DESTDIR=/foo

but try this with ports and let all hope go. There is even a PR in the
queue that solves some issues, but it has been left to rot for years,

Any takers?
