I wouldn't cite from djb pages - Theo seems to dislike him (and for example
daemontools is a port which is eligible to _exist_ in the base ports tree,
just with PERMIT_*=No - for djbdns, PERMIT_DISTFILES_FTP=Yes is even pos-
sible). Theo likes to play a politician here.

Just my 2 Eurocent, which are more worth than yours ;-)
