  Because learning how to use some of the other tools outside the scope of
the ports tree is kind of interesting, imho. I'd like to learn more about
gcc and other tools for building software in FreeBSD, even if its just a
purely academic pursuit.

  I guess working on a layer lower than the ports collection adds some
satisfaction to my curiousity.

  There are those who use their cars solely for transportation, and others
who enjoy restoring them/taking them apart/modifying them. I think the
same kind of principles apply. Those just using their vehicles for
transportation scratch their heads and wonder why anyone would have an
interest in anything other than hassle free service.
