I obviously did. At least the example in porters' handbook and
all slave ports use ${.CURDIR}/../ Could some help me improve
my understanding and explain why it is preferable to refer to the
location of the current port in the file system rathen than to a 
particular port in the ports tree?

Best reagrds and please excuse my last mail.
