It depends on acroread5, bash2, cdrtools, unix2dos, emacs20, fetchmail,
gs, grip, gimp1, gv, gnupg, kde3, mkisofs, smbfs, mutt, mozilla, posfix,
xtset, xmms, xv. 

The most ports are availble on CD as package including the largest port,
kde3. The number of packages that are availble could be reason enove to
include a instant-workstation package on the CD. This would save time
looking up all the availeble packages and saves compilation time for
someone who later decides to install the remaining ports.

Availble as package on the CD rom are: acroread5, bash2, cdrtools,
emacs20, fetchmail, gv, kde3, mkisofs, mutt, mozilla, posfix, xv

Not available: unix2dos, grip, gnupg, smbfs, xtset, xmms

Unkown to me: gs
