Dear Folk,

	The reference was enlightening, but what does ${worksrcpath} mean? It is part 
of the definitions for configure, build, and destroot. Ultimately it's defined 
in terms of ${portbuildpath} which has only one use on that page in the 
definition of workpath. ???

	More is better than less when it comes to definitions.
