ditto...  after upgrading Perl to 5.8.4 and waiting 4 days for the Perl 
upgrade script from /usr/ports/UPGRADING to complete ( not including Open 
Office 1.1.1), I'm uncannily impressed that essentially nothing broke in the 
442 ports in my /var/db/pkg.

The uneffected competence that the FreeBSD team demonstrates beguiles me 
(most) everytime.

Thanks guys (and gals)
