Thanks for your reply.  I'm still learning about the ports system and
how to find the info I need.  

I don't have a /usr/ports/MOVED on my system.  Am I supposed to be
looking on the FBSD web site somewhere?

I did find the cvsweb stuff but do not understand what I'm looking at. 
I see directories like "files", "scripts", and "attic".  The "Last log
entry" just says "Main modification graphics/gd (based on 1.8.4)..."
which I don't know how to interpret.  Is there something I can read to
learn about this?

Thanks for helping.

Drew
