I would just like to ask / know. Did anything weird or wonderful happen on the FreeBSD ports.

To show you what I mean.

[root at torry /usr/home/bclark]# portaudit -F -a; portsnap fetch update; pkg_version -vIL=; freebsd-update  fetch install

4180 patches really !!!

I run the above command almost everyday, so the most I have ever really seen is 300 - 400 patches. But 4180 has got me attention.
