What can/should I do other than make dist-clean prior to the rest? Guess I 
didn't think about the issue being on my end. But of course it's possible, 
not sure how to check it though. Hmm, maybe I should try another port, 
something small perhaps and see if it has problems as well. I did several 
installs from the ports no problem e.g. Apache, PostgreSql and then things 
got a little chaotic. Samba afaik installed fine but my configuration 
attempts quickly became fubar'd. I will get back to that eventually, using 
ssh and ftp from my workstation is just fine for now. And my X11 install 
didn't complete cuz I ran out of space on my /usr partition so I cleared 
all that out.

Other than that haven't had any problems... and have been up and running 
for 2 1/2 weeks now. :)
