	Well... The only lost+found that I have is in /home... So it seems I
have to find another way =) I've just checked : only three of the busted ports
have been updated. So, using cvsweb, retrieving {Makefile,distinfo,pkg-plist}
for these three ports and rebuilding all the busted ports (8 altogether), I
will slowly but surely reach my goal... Well... I hope so ;)
