But i am told that this perl solution runs faster than the old pkg_tools of
J. Hubbard which says a lot about what is really important to get good
stuff. By the way, loading and interpreting the 4000 lines of bsd.port.mk
is for sure incredibly slow, but i doubt that scattering the content in
tons of files enhances speed - or readability.
