Well, the last time a friend of mine looked at the instructions for
installing the current release (which is a version or two ahead of ports, I
think), he claimed the instructions for setting up the SQL tables were "use
the upgrade script to convert from the old version", with no instructions
for new installs .

I do hope he merely didn't find them, but that in itself might say
something. :)
