There are a lot of small things I came to love over the time, e.g.
support for shlock, (b)make package also building the packages of its
dependencies (that'S IMO the most annoying thing in ports). I think that
the option framework is much better implemented than ports', though it
would be nice to have a dialog sometimes. Overall, I found it more
annyoing in ports though, partly also because defining BATCH has other
side-effects too.
