Let us straighten a few things out here, the perpetuation of this kind of
nonsense puts us back in the dark Lord of Redmond world.

A language is a language. Ok GCC has groovy extras to allow FreeBSD and
Linux to compile.  
I expect that "Hello. world" will compile   
link and run .. yes ?
Does it matter very much what CPU I have, how much memory etc..?
Linking, Now we have another story.
It is quite educational to find thet KDE has a dependency on a game
program ;) Yup it sure does.
I know people put in precious spare time to just about the best OS on
the planet.
But "portupgrade" just does not hack it.
Ok. End of story. Otherwise I will get banned again by the inner corpus.
Let us make it better.
