Record 20080318 in /usr/ports/UPDATING says that in order for skype to 
work OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=fc6 should be set. I did that in order to 
make skype work. I believe latest versions of skype don't work work 
FreeBSD because FreeBSD only uses OSS audio and newer skypes are non-OSS.

So now if I remove that line from /etc/make.conf skype is likely to 
break and google-earth to be fixed.

How can I have both working?

Looks like for some unknown reason linux has incompatible files 
libstdc++.so.6 in different versions instead of bumping number in name.

Is it possible to have several linux bases under different install bases?
