FreeBSD Port: rancid-2.3

Dear Sergey,

	The problem with the rancid port came from the earlier version of
rancid. The rancid installed lots of programs in RANCID_HOME/bin. E.g.
called env, that could generate lots of problem. Fortunately this has been
changed with rancid 2.3, however rancid installs 44 program into a
RANCID_HOME/bin. Do you know a method to check, if a certain port does
not overwrite a file from another port?
	The other concern is, that rancid is rather specific for network
management. I didn't really like the idea to polute /usr/local/bin with
all the 44 binary programs. Therefore I let rancid to install its own
hierachy. But I am thinking of moving them to
	I try to make rancid hier(7) compliant soon...
