New slrn-dev port

I'm trying to write a new slrn-dev port using the same cvs snapshot used
in debian-unstable.

To do this I think I need to execute some commands between the
various phases of the automated process:

1) The name of the sources tarball is
slrn_0.9.8.1pl2~cvs20061116.orig.tar.gz, but the enclosed folder is
called slrn- ("-" instead of "_" and w/o .orig)
How could I workaround this? Now I simply use slrn-
as distname, but I have to manually place sources in

2) Inside the autoconf directory a couple of links are wrong. They point
to /usr/share/automake-1.9/ and on tiger I have automake-1.6. 
Is this a common problem? (which is a different way of asking for a common
solution ;-)

I'm using the current slrn portfile as a base, and I'm not sure it's
completely correct in the ssl variant, because it explicitly points to

If it's needed I can send the portfile I'm writing.
