I was just wondering the same. In which case, we must remove 
security/sudo from the tree because it contains racial slurs.

Yea, it's optional (INSULTS), but hey, so is installing any ports.

(btw, if it isn't clear, I am _NOT_ complaining about sudo. don't you 
dare remove insults, that's its best feature! The "racial" ones can be 
patched out with  INSULTS_CONFIGURE_ON+= --with-pc-insults, if anyone 
really WAS thinking about bringing a banhammer to that option...)
