Well I just got some flack for forgetting to include a Subject line, so 
I'll put one in this one:

Probably a simple one, but I haven't found anything on it in the 
Porter's Handbook, and google didn't find it for me.

When I build my project not as a FreeBSD port, I get a binary named 
cs240chess and it installs it with that name.  When I do it a as a 
FreeBSD port I get i386-portbld-freebsd4.7-cs240chess.  How do I change 
this name back to cs240chess?

Also when I try "make package" it tells me it can't find "bin/chess".  
Where does "make package" get the name of the binary it is supposed to 

Any help on this would we great.  Thanks.

I forgot to include this in the last email.  Here is my Make file:
