Did some quick testing on a non-production machine, and it seemed to 
work OK. Not so sure you need to get rid of the CHANGES.port file as I 
think it is more FreeBSD specific than just the upstream change log. 
However, it probably isn't a big deal either way.

I'll keep working with it and let you know if I run across anything strange.
