Comment (by gctwnl):

 No problem, this is a first attempt and I’m learning. So no wonder that my
 monkey-see-monkey-do approach wasn’t perfect :-) I can experiment with a
 simpler revision.

 I’m willing to help out on this but what stops me is the amount of time to
 learn all the git (especially) stuff. It is finding out what to do exactly
 (commands etc.) is what is taking time. I know how version control works
 basically (worked with sccs, rcs, vcs, svn in the grey past, but always as
 a single user), but while I have a github (and gitlab) account, I need to
 know the exact ''commands'' to do an update. My experience was Makefiles
 and the configure (and configure.guess etc.) in the past, always working
 on my own copy, not having much to do with working in a collaboration with
 others in a version control system.

 I do not understand well enough how everything works. For instance, I
 still do not feel comfortable with the fact that I have a Portfile
 separately in a different location and that it actually works outside of
 the tree. I just have not enough insight in how things work. If someone
 could take me by the hand so to speak, I could be up an running vry fast
 and contribute (that I think given my past experience).
