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.
