****   TAKE THIS TO PORTS@FREEBSD.ORG  *****

This is NOT a -current issue!!  And the people that can actually effect
change hang out on ports@freebsd.org, not necessarly on
current@freebsd.org

*IF* people were to take this to ports@freebsd.org, they would have
learned there was a discussion about a month ago in which the conclusion
was to use one dir per port, but remove the subdirs w/in each ports
subdir.

Thus rather than
    foo/Makefile
    foo/files/md5
    foo/pkg/PLIST
    foo/pkg/DESCR
    foo/pkg/COMMENT
    foo/patch/patch-aa
    foo/patch/patch-ab

we would have
    foo/Makefile
    foo/md5
    foo/pkg_PLIST
    foo/pkg_DESCR
    foo/pkg_COMMENT
    foo/patch-aa
    foo/patch-ab
