i must have missed that part when i read that file...

good idea... i'll have to start doing that...

it would be a good thing to fix, as it will likely screw up FreeBSD
port builds if it stays this way. if you try to build with a version
already installed you're probably screwed. that's what happened to me

while. couldn't figure out why nobody else on the list was getting
these crashes ;-)
