I can find the port maintainers in the respective Makefiles. I sent a
message on that subject two days ago, no response so far. Maybe the
maintainers are off for the weekend; otherwise I can send another message,
with CC to the port maintainers, Tuesday morning, giving time for a Monday
I looked in "man sysexits" and in the referenced file,
/usr/include/sysexits.h : showed error codes 64 to 78.
Where do I find documentation for other error codes?
