I found that having the guide all on one page was VERY handy, I was skipping
all around it when I wrote my first port. Since package management isn't too
scary to me, and building from source isn't either, I essentially knew how
to build the package I was trying to write, but I didn't know how to
implement it in a Portfile. Getting help in IRC and cross-referencing
people's suggestions with information from the guide made things really
Anyways, just my two cents.
