	Sal, did you sync your tree before performing this test....? I don't  
have tor installed, but I see:

$[juan @MacBookPro: base](489/0,0) -> port search tor
tor                            security/tor      
anonymizing overlay network for TCP

	So I wouldn't be too sure about calling those results conclusive,  
I'm afraid.
