The process isn't incorrect, the more correcter process is simply
shar -> send-pr.

Please check on:
and ignore the part about tarballing and uuencoding it.

Basically, shar `find ./portname` > yourport.shar ; send-pr -a ./yourport.shar

What you submitted isn't incorrect or invalid. But, with my limited
FreeBSD time, I personally tend to ignore PRs where I can't read the
content, and I know I'm not the only one.
