A handy tip for anyone mixing packages from the official repo and their own
packages from ports: each individual build page displays the SVN revision of
the ports tree from which that particular set of packages was built, so you can
sync your own ports tree with it. This, of course, requires using SVN instead
of portsnap to keep your tree up-to-date.
