Run 'portlint -C' and fix anything it flags up -- well, within reason.
Sometimes portlint complains about things it shouldn't.

Then submit your port.  For a new port, you need to create a .shar of
the port directory, which you can attach to the PR like so:

    send-pr -a newport.shar

When filling in the PR in the editor it pops you into, you need to set
the appropriate field in the PR to 'change-request'.  No need to fill in
all the sections -- for ports PRs it's mostly 'Description' that gets
filled in.  Everything else is pretty obvious I think.

The comitter who works on the port will run it through tinderbox testing
and get back to you if there are any problems.
