I agree that they probably *should* be asked on ports@, but
because it is lower traffic, there is a lesser chance of getting

Not necessarily.  I've heard of knowledgable poeple who are on ports@

The conversations on ports@ seem to be mostly concerned with the needs
of port maintainers rather than the users of ports.  If you have
problems getting a port to build or a package added, it feels like the
right place to get help.
But I'm not sure whether it's the place for questions that come up after
the initial install.  questions@ seems to be the place for those.

I haven't been on either list very long, however, and I could have been
misled by a small sample size.
