OTOH, bending backwards to support FreeBSD ports structure is going a bit
against logic in my opinion.

Besides, we are tripping a lot more issues recently than just these simple
matters.  We _do_ need to move to our own system slowly by now.

Yes, if we keep going under the FreeBSD banner with ports we build on a ton
more ports, but OTOH, fixes for DF will almost never truly tested if we rip
the FreeBSD name out and get stuff filtered upstream.
