New port for embedded targets

I have created a new port for use in an embedded FreeBSD project
(home page : )

This port creates a small X Window environment, fitting in approximately
6 megabytes. It is sufficient to launch a local X server and a single
client, or to query a remote xdm server.

By default, the port installs in a /var/tmp directory so that the resulting
files can be easily copied to their final destination (ramdisk, flashdisk,
etc ...)

The only video driver compiled in by default is for a Via integrated chipset,
but this can easily be changed.

A tarball of this port can be downloaded from here:

Feedback would be welcome !
