Not exactly bloated, but it could be considered "overhead"
just to build one or two ports. However, Poudriere is not
intended as a replacement for portmaster or portmanager,
that's important to keep in mind. And for the specific
case I mentioned, local repositories and restricted lists
are the way to go. If even that's too much, the classic
"make install" and "pkg lock" will probably be okay.

Except for the name, I don't dislike anything specific about
Poudriere. ;-)
