I maintain a port that accesses the release distribution files. Now with
9.0 having a different path /i386/i386 and the files being compressed
first with tar and then again with xz I need to change the port to
access the new layout and file format.
I would like to leave the current version in the ports as is which works
fine with the 8.x world and add a second version that only works with
9.0 and newer.
Question is how do i change the port description of the current port to
say it supports 8.x with out re-adding the complete port again?
I know I have to add the new port version that supports ge 9.0.
