I always thought the port: dependency a very nice thing, but I wonder  
if it is well suited for libraries.  For instance, it would be very  
helpful for me to create a glib-devel port.  But that would mean  
modifying over 60 ports that have a port:glib2 dependency.  The same  
happened with the gtk28 port and the same is most likely to happen  

Any thoughts about this ?
