Sounds like it would be a useful feature but in the meantime could anyone 
point me to where I can find the SVN revision used by the ports cluster when 
building for 101amd64-default? It used to be on but that now only shows 101amd64-
quarterly and 93amd64-default. I assume the build logs must be available
