CFT: astro/boinc-setiathome-enhanced update

I have a patch[1] ready for the astro/boinc-setiathome-enhanced port to
update it to 6.03 (which is the same as 5.27 but with the science and
graphics code separated), and to add astropulse 4.28 (same as 4.35, but
the version number never got updated in SVN) to it.

To test it, download the patch and replace the contents of
/usr/ports/astro/boinc-setiathome-enhanced with the contents of the

It builds on my 7.0-RELEASE amd64 box, but the resulting astropulse
binary crashes at startup.  This might have something to do with a
polluted source directory for the setiathome part, as the source code
for astropulse borrows from the setiathome source code.  I have an
astropulse test work unit available.

The port fails to build on a 7.1-BETA2 i386 box at work.  At some point
during the configuration of astropulse, configure complains about a bad
fd number (gurus around?).  This happens both with the regenerated
configure script and with the original one (remove './_autosetup' from
line 78 of the Makefile).

Thanks for any ideas,
