Well 'make check-plist' must be ran manually. I think I'll enable it
automatically soon. I've avoided it because it would break Redports even

Ugh. That's a bad page. I'm working on a blog article for this case to
get out soon. I may get it into the Journal as well.

1. No need for commented line in the Makefile
2. Only 1 WWW for pkg-descr
3. If 'make check-plist' passes then I approve it and you can commit
yourself. I am mentoring several src committers for ports and getting
them bits after enough work, so just ping me whenever you have more.
