Binary Packages (again)

Saw that "binaries" was on the summer agenda again ?

Not sure what it means, the pkg/xpkg and package/rpm
paths are still open if anyone wants to venture there.
But assuming that it's mostly about the archives and
providing pre-built destroots, like those MPAB .tbz2...

So I added @pkgdep to the +CONTENTS (like in FreeBSD),
to record the versions/revisions of the dependencies.
Hopefully that could be of _some_ help, when trying to
install from archives only (i.e. the "port -b" flag)

Real packages would be better, but archives is "OK".
