Just for the record, this isn't true. The active-variants PortGroup exists in two
versions due to an API change.
On the issue at hand, my standpoint is that we should support common build systems
in base, e.g. at least autoconf and cmake. Ideally, a Portfile for an autoconf
tool would in my mind boil down to
# <download metadata, name, version, and license information>
Along with that, we should radically speed up and improve our base release process,
and improve code quality and API spec in base.
