Why bother porting non-base packages, since FreeBSD has linux
emulation mode?

It seems to me that dpkg and apt are not compatible with BSD
ports.  What debian-bsd needs is a good packaging system, that
handles dependencies properly, dist-upgrade properly, etc.

Isn't this the whole reason for debian-bsd - a proper packaging

And what a waste a bandwidth with all sorts of people running
cvsup from their cron.  Give me binary packages and apt upgrade.
