Hi ports@
IMO No port should need root for 
	cd /usr/ports; make -i fetch
The first one that broke for me was databases/mysql-q4m
(OK might be others before, but I have DUDS =
	 arabic biology chinese hebrew hungarian japanese korean
	 polish portuguese russian ukrainian vietnamese games demime
	 majordomo acroreadwrapper acroread9 chimera dosbox emil
	 firefox freerdp gimp-app gv libcue mp3splt-gtk nut opera
	 ripit vlc xorg xsane
(MAINTAINER CC'd) but there's more ports beyond, usually because
some ports also go berserk & install, or mabe install dependents.
