 > Some suggested changes to the Portfile:
 >  * You can obfuscate your email address to help thwart spam harvesters,
 like so: `sneakemail.com:0booo5b02`. The output from 'port info' will
 still be the same.

 The email is already obfuscated (hence the sneakemail.com domain) but
 thanks. Besides that, it is displayed in plaintext in this very page.

 >  * You should use ${prefix} instead of hardcoding /opt/local in `--with-
 dvdread-libs=/opt/local`. You also don't need to specify
 `--prefix=${prefix}` in configure.args, since it is automatically set in

 I missed that one.

 >  * Since you're specifying the path to MacPorts' libdvdread, you don't
 want the dependency satisfied by something installed somewhere else, so
 you should use `port:libdvdread` rather than `lib:libdvdread:libdvdread`.

 I suspected this but wasn't sure so I decided to keep it as in the port in
 which I based this one.

 >  * The `cd` command is deprecated, so don't use it. You should also
 generally use the built-in Tcl command `file link -symbolic` rather than
 calling ln via the system command. However, these points are actually
 irrelevant in this case, since you don't need the pre-configure phase. You
 can just use `configure.cmd    configure.sh`.

 I missed this `configure.cmd in the documentation but configure.sh doesn't
 work, it needs to be set to ./configure.sh

 configure.cmd is only mentioned in relation to configure.args,
 configure.pre_args, configure.post_args. Maybe having its own entry in the
 documentation would be a good idea.

 New Portfile attached

 This was my first port for this system so thank you for your suggestions
 and help.
