I Love the idea of having a minimal system... i think sendmail, ssh,
openssl, pf, and maybe even gcc(now that clang is default)
should somehow go in ports... but i do think that the package files should
be always kept up to date, and delivered on the install media, or
bootstrapped in some way like pkg is..
