The Porter's Handbook should specify a policy for Linux ports.


1) Some ports put the linux prefix in PKGNAMEPREFIX
   (www/linux-mozilla), some put it in PORTNAME
   (multimedia/linux-realplayer), some omit it entirely

2) Some ports install themselves in LOCALBASE or X11BASE
   (www/linux-mozilla), some install themselves in LINUXBASE
