Hmm. I'm not that knowledgeable with pear yet, but I think it should be
possible to use pear without Apache.
Also, pear seems to be only used for the web front end, which isn't
necessary at all for a working TB installation (as you said).

Steve Wills sent my a mail today and also suggested to get rid of the
Apache dependency, or better, to create perhaps two ports, the real
tinderbox (tc, tinderbuild, tinderd), and the tinderbox-web (www-exp
directory, Apache dependency etc).
I really would like to try this road.

Another thing I'd really like to work on is improving both the port
installation instructions, as well as tinderbox documentation. 
That implies installing the manpages to the correct locations, etc.

Regards,
Andreas

PS: I'm going to work on these parts as soon as I finish my bachelor's
thesis (12 days from now). :)
