website confusion: ports list and sources?

Convenient command: `port cat portname`. That will spit out the  
source to the Portfile for the given portname.

You can also use `cd $(port dir portname)` to chdir to the folder  
containing the given Portfile. That's handy when you want to check  
the files/ subdir.
