A few more problems: a) Not every port will have a corresponding tarball in /usr/ports/distfiles. A few ports have all the source directly in the ports tree. This means that your point 1) above is not necessarily true. b) Several ports have many tarballs in /usr/ports/distfiles c) A few of the tarballs can be used by more than one port. > > It's number 3 that's getting me.
