Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

ISC recently announced that BIND 8 has been End-of-Life'd:

Therefore, per the previous announcement, remove the ports for BIND 8.
This includes the chinese/bind8 slave port, and mail/smc-milter which
has a dependency on libbind_r.a from BIND 8.x. The latter has been
unmaintained since 2005, and is 3 versions behind.

1. Add the patch for 8.4.7-P1, and bump PORTVERSION in a way that works
for us.

2. Tighten the list of master sites way down since almost all mirrors
have dropped BIND 8.

Begin the de-orbit burn for the beloved, but now more than a bit long
in the tooth BIND 8. As of today (27 August 2007) ISC has announced
that BIND 8 is officially End of Life (EOL) and therefore it's time
to say good-bye.

Please see for details on the
reasoning behind the EOL status, the latest security issues, and a
migration guide to help you move toward BIND 9.4.x.

bind8 (BIND 8.3.7) is marked FORBIDDEN due to the predictable query ID
bug (see above) which will not be fixed for this version.

bind84 is marked DEPRECATED, and will be upgraded to 8.4.7-P1 when it
is available.

For the ports that I maintain, do the following as appropriate:

1. Add myself as a backup master site (Sourceforge and CPAN ports
already have good enough coverage, so skip them).
2. For all ports that have them, download the PGP signature files.
3. For ports in 2, add a verify target to the Makefile
4. For ports where I was already providing a master site, update the URL.
5. Pet portlint in a couple of places.

Update to version 8.4.6, the latest from ISC. To quote the release notes:

BIND 8.4.6-REL is a security release of BIND 8.4.

        It is possible to remotely trigger a overrun causing a
        denial of service.  If you are running BIND 8.4.4 or
        BIND 8.4.5 you should upgrade.

1. Add ipv6 as a virtual category, since a key reason for the
BIND 8.4.x branch is IPv6 transport.
2. Download the PGP .asc files for the src and doc tarballs.
3. Add a new example file to PORTDOCS.

Change the way PORT_REPLACES_BASE_BIND8 works by adding an explicit
variable for replacing includes as well. Users who replaced the base
BIND and then attempted to compile other software with -D_REENTRANT
were having problems because netdb.h has a different definition for

The idea of replacing includes originated with users who wanted to
compile apps against the libbind installed by the port, however those
"power users" can either add the switch to replace includes, or modify
their own includes slightly to use the "safe" location for the port
include files (PREFIX/include/bind).

The PR mentions the problem, along with a cast of thousands. :)

Other tuneups for the port are just portlint appeasements.

Due to an unfortunate bug in BIND 8.4.3 ISC has deprecated this version.

The bug is not security related but triggers BIND to generate lots of
unnecessary additional queries under some circumstances with a
potential for operational impact.

BIND 8.4.4 will be available soon as a replacement.
