Except there is no meta port to install all components (which is 
generally what one needs to do). And to make it worse, each one is 
spread over the ports skeleton making it quite irritating to search 
for each thing you need and go installing it.

"There have been hacker forums where, out of some misguided sense of 
hyper-courtesy, participants are banned from posting any fault-finding 
with another's posts, and told ''Don't say anything if you're 
unwilling to help the user.'' The resulting departure of clueful 
participants to elsewhere causes them to descend into meaningless 
babble and become useless as technical forums." - Eric Steven Raymond
