You accidently answered my question :-)  I guess you have set those 
whenever the commit mail came in ... so the view of past package 
versions is from past executions of `make -V'.

I wish I could `cd /usr/ports/some/app && make package-names' to get a 
list of all package names this port ever built.  or some such.

Sounds great.  I imagine you probably generate the pages from your 
database, but if you need any help with rendering directly from the 
XML, lemme know.
