I'm confused.  FreshPorts obtains information primarily via "make -
V". pkg_version works on installed ports only.  FreshPorts is not 
gong to install a port to find out what version we have.  Are we 
talking about the same thing?

That's news to me. Thanks.  I see it is used to create PKGNAME.  
Looking at range data of vuxml, I see now that PORTEPOCH is used.  
OK.  Thanks for the heads up.
