I frequently run "portsnap fetch update", recently downloaded the new system
source using svn, am preparing kernel configuration files for amd64 and i386.

This is the first patch you sent me.  I have to decode the quoted-printable
first.  My Python version is 2.73, I would have preferred 3.1 or newer, but
FreeBSD ports required 2.7 as dependency and wouldn't take 3.x .

It's been a long time with OpenCV, including some months before you took over.

I didn't know what if anything was happening.

Now I want to upgrade the FreeBSD system to 9.1 (prerelease or postrelease?),
I follow STABLE branch.  Then I have to upgrade pcre and ports that depend on
pcre, that could take several weeks if there are snags.
