That's just fine -- MacPorts doesn't use Perl! :) Portfiles are  
written in Tcl, which is a lot more like writing a configuration file  
than a script. It's easy.

If you'd like to write a portfile for SQLFairy we'd be happy to  
accept it. Best way to get started is to read the old docs, and look  
at existing portfiles to see how they work (type "port edit mysql5"  
or "port edit php5" for some complicated examples, or "port edit  
pkgconfig" or "port edit cairo" for some simple ones). See also the  
portfile manpage ("man portfile"). The old docs are in the archive:
