I don't think that would be the right place to mention it. Having
/usr/ports and /usr/xenocara as part of the /usr filesystem is
probably unusual, but i can't see anything seriously wrong with it.
Only /usr/ports/pobj needs a dedicated file system, and you can
easily do that after checking out the ports tree, even much later
once you run into the problem.
