There's a lot of stuff in there that really shouldn't be. All of the
locale stuff shouldn't have to be in plists; PREFIX/share/locale/*
should be ignored. Same goes for things like usr/local/var,
usr/local/www, the GNOME gconf.xml.defaults stuff, generic perl lib
directories, etc.

If those false positive directories were grepped out, the list would be
a LOT easier to parse. As it is, it looks like the vast majority of our
ports are present in that list.

And, all that aside, is there something going on with kiri's Japanese
ports? Are there really hundreds of things missing from the xemacs, etc.
plists, or is the script parsing things in a way the port doesn't
intend? I ask only because it seems surprising that there should be so
many files neglected in a plist...
