dovecot might be a package that could be hosted on -ports. As well as xosview.

For gdb, there are already patches available to build it successfully
now. What's the plan then, keep it non-building in the main archive
until Wheezy and then hoping the patches are accepted/applied to remain
in mai, not hosting any gdb-package in -ports?

Are the dependencies so fine-grained, so that even if there is a newer
package in -ports, it will not be used by the buildds?

If not what's hindering the eglibc patch, linked to before, to be
applied to the -ports version, so that clisp can be built?
