     Ah, yes.  I now see that I missed the part of the man page that says,
"list directories from /usr/ports for root and leaf ports".  Sigh.  Thanks
much for your direct reply, which I did see when it arrived, but was too
tired at that point to reply to.
     At this point, the process has to be put on hold for the weekend, but
I hope to proceed Monday night.  Thanks again for your response!
     Also, I replied to Victor Sudakov <vas at mpeks.tomsk.su> directly, but
neglected to Cc: this list, for which I apologize to anyone concerned.
