Ok, with some trials and tribulations I have two ports in submitted. Turns 
out the maintainer of sabnzbd released a new version of the software 
sometime today (same day I submitted the port) so I had to make an update 
the very same day I posted the new port. Whee.

Hopefully now that I know the ins and outs of the make files, maintaining 
the ports will require less effort. (I hope I don't continously have to 
patch files which don't get installed correctly when PREFIX is defined).

Thanks for everyone's help who responded.
