A dynamic plist gets generated in each build of the port by port
specific commands in the Makefile (e.g. www/mozilla).
A static plist is available from CVS (PLIST_FILES, PLIST_DIRS in the
Makefile or the ordinary pkg-plist file) and may contain variable
elements like "%%OPTION%%".
The computer revolution is over. The computers won.
