Errr --- that should probably read:
You certainly don't need the asterisks there.
In any case, setting this variable will screw up indexing, because a
number of e-lisp ports will try and append the EMACS_PORT_NAME to
their package origin if it is set. However not all the ports that
do that also have a slave port 'foo-emacs22' hence the problems with
building the INDEX.
The best answer is don't set EMACS_PORT_NAME in /etc/make.conf --
emacs22 is the default now anyhow. The INDEX will build just fine,
and the various e-lisp packages seem to work OK as well, so long as
you've reinstall all the e-lisp packages once you've upgraded from
emacs21 to emacs22.
