This was one example. It wasn't placing blame. Alpha may have had the same
problems prior to going to frozen. The thing is that the frozen/unstable
fork currently revolves around the schedule of the main dist (i386) 
causing problems for ports that may lag behind awhile before freezing. 
Once deep freeze is in, the ports that aren't frozen will be put back into
