Okay, I've tried it on a test machine, and it seems to work
alright (so far), at least with the few programs I've compiled.
It looks like a bad plist only, and I think that I understand
the ramifications of it, so I'll stick to this workaround until
the port is fixed.

I'll have a look as soon as I grok the ports system and find
out how to do that. ;-)
