Thanks for the informations ! ;-)

Maybe I rebuild my machine/ports this or next weekend.
Lets see how hard the heat hurts ;-)

Well, without metaport it could become an interesting thing to install X.

Maybe there is a readme telling whats needed as a base.

If somebody should have a meta port for testing I would like to give
it a try then.

I didn't find instructions yet, how to best use your "beta ports" in
the wiki system. Maybe I overlooked something. Can I remotely checkout
somehow ? Would need a tip. I only know "remote cvs" operation.
