i have written a rather long paper describing the Freebsd port system, and
comparing it with the Debian system. This has some information which is, i
hope, orthogonal to that in the Porter's handbook. You can find the TeX
source, the PDF and an html version here: (resp .pdf .tex).
Of course everyone is free to copy part or all, and to improve or criticize.
I hope this may be useful for beginners wanting to learn "how it works" in
more details.
