What can I say?  I think pasting an error log, and only an error log, is
"quite rude".  But I'm also serious -- if this is the official response
(and seeing that you are a member of portmgr, that makes it pretty close
to official), then I'll follow through and simply unsubscribe from the
list.  If FreeBSD isn't going to enforce their own procedures and use of
infrastructure, I will limit my exposure to the continuing anarchy and
let "customer service" to those that agree that ports@ is a free-for-all.
