It is the naming convention for MacPorts as it was borrowed from FreeBSD
ports. Beta releases/Release candidates get a -devel suffix. Although it
makes dependencies a bit complicated, it is the only way we currently
have for this, as MacPorts can't handle multiple versions of the same
port at the moment.
