One thing that's happening is some port dependencies
won't make --- at least this was true late last week
or early this one; tried building /usr/ports/lang/php4
with aspell support and the Makefile couldn't find
the aspell library tarball anywhere on its list...a
quick perusal of ftp.gnu.org showed that the files
were "removed" until verification had taken place...
