So far you didn't show any broken port. How a member of portmgr@ can
vote? May be that one (two, ... much more) port(s) can be fixed
without portmgr@ decision? May be let's take 'em one by one?
As a ports committer and a member of linux emulation team I'm very
interested in fixing broken ports.

You might be quite right. But please, show any evidence, give any
details that one can confirm and finally fix a port. The best way
is to show that a port foo/linux-<bar> by default installs to ...
(ex., /usr/local). That breaks the port foo/linux-<baz>...

BTW, suggestions like changing a default path etc. imho does not
belong to ports questions and so does not lie within portmgr@
jurisdiction. I can't say for sure which list is preferable (in
order you may get a professional answer). May be at current@ or
even hackers at .
