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...)
