> Creating new py25 port for mssql 0.8.0

When creating ports derived from other ports, please use "svn copy"  
to create the copy, rather than using a normal OS copy or creating  
the files from scratch. For example in this case, py25-mssql is  
clearly based on py-mssql but because you did not use "svn copy" the  
history is disconnected and the commands "svn log" and "svn blame" on  
py25-mssql are not useful. Instead you should have changed to the  
dports/python directory and used "svn copy py-mssql py25-mssql", then  
made your edits to py25-mssql, then committed. I have deleted the  
port in r38777 and recreated it in r38778 to accomplish this.
