I think you've misunderstood the term dependency hell [1]. Anyone who
has spent hours struggling with rpm (ugh, or worse CMMI) to get x
application installed
which depends on y from and s from, which also
need rpm-ing with their own dependencies would never dare to even
think of such terms
when using the Ports Collection. I found it a miracle when I first moved!
