Hmm... Thought I did, but I clearly did not...  Fixed...  I've attached
the latest version of the port..

I didn't do poudriere, but I did all the building w/ DEVELOPER=1
set, which did fix a few things..

Looks like port test from porttools as documented at:

Is wrong.. you need to be in the port directory for it to work...

Well, I'm fine w/ someone else committing the port, just trying to save
someone the work, and trying to get it into the tree in a timely
manner..  I viewed the review as approval...  Guess I should have made
it more clear in my original request...

btw, the included patch has been upstreamed, but they haven't tagged a
new rc yet...
