My FreeBSD-4.11R system gives me on "portupgrade linux_base" an upgrade
to some RH-7.3 linux release. Lots of other ports seem to relate to
linux_base-8. If I deinstall linux_base, WHAT other port package do I
really need (want). There is lots of them nowadays (redhat, debian,
suse; I lost track..)
