Not that fascinating. Only takes a minute to realize that x11 apps depend on
apps outside the x11 scope and one should *always* update Mk/. The only
categories that I've had removed from a csup port distribution are the
internationalization categories. However, after some review of what kind of
extra traffic these generate, I decided that it wasn't worth the editing time
of the csup file.
Proceeding with partial ports trees or worse, partially csup'd port trees,
gives nasty errors that take longer to debug then they save you download
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
