True, good point. I just hope that DragonFlyBSD will keep the power of
flexible/choice for the end user to have the ability to install by
source/compile and binary like FreeBSD, but better and better. I do use
binary packages of cvsup, gmake and other lower stuff because there's not
much that I can use. I rather to have source tarball and compile for other
apps such as AbiWord, Apache and etc to have my own tweak of options what
I want. :-)

I think, I should let this topic go and wait for other months when the
package system is starting to discussion and work on. Then, we can bring
this back. ;-)
