Discussions in the past have led to the same conclusion: if you
symlink /usr/ports, you need to set PORTSDIR to the new location. See
also Message-ID: <4034C24E.60709 at portaone.com> to freebsd-ports of 19
feb 2004, and a thread before that in which I did not participate and
therefore have no record of right now.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
