It would be nice to have a command like

port create URL

that would download the URL, calc the checksums for it, and build a basic 
Portfile for it.

It could ask for a category to use for the Port.

In a more advance version, it could extract the URL and do some quick analysis 
on it.

if there's a CMakeLists.txt file in the root, do the right things to make it a 
cmake based port.

If there's a configure file in the root, do the right things for that.

Might make things faster and easier for people to get started and up and 

Certainly would make it easier for people who want to use MacPorts 
infrastructure to build their own files, as many don't know how to properly set 
up the include and lib directories, etc.
