ports && 10-CURRENT

You don't understand. devel/imake is a fine piece of software but people do 
not want to install more software than they have to. net/vnc comes with 
it's own integrated Xserver. Using this logic we should integrate 
x11-servers/xorg into it too. Neither makes sense. The only reason to use 
devel/imake is if net/vnc _installs_ its own imake, which it does not. 
There's no reason to install more software just to build other software if 
we don't need it. It's extra baggage.

I'll put net/vnc on my list of 10-exp builds that need fixing.
