I installed the package now leaving the port alone. At I
got wv-1.0.0_4.tbz while the port wants to install wv-1.0.0_5 - a newer
one. I wonder what I get from this... but it seems to continue compiling
the other stuff now.

For me it looks kind of strange that the port installs a newer version
than the newest (?) package available. It's even more funny if just that
port fails to compile... but I can hardly believe I really got a broken
port this time and not just another stupid error of mine.

Do you all know something I don't know? I did not yet read "UPDATING"
since I do only installing, not updating.
