The pkg_add IS quite obvious, BUT, say for example you build a package
that requires pth. You just go into that port's dir, and do a make.
The port you're building notices that you don't have pth, and it gets
it and installs it all nicely, then goes about its buisness of building
the port you want. The pkg_add message for pth went by 3000+ lines
ago. In that case you're screwed until you read other docs for it.
Especialy if you are building at the console, and you don't have the
ability to scroll up.
Is there a way that the ports can send all of those messages to a
buffer and just pipe the buffer to more (or less, lets make it a
variable) at the end of the build so you can see things like that (add
pth to ldconfig, add /usr/local/bin to your path, jump on your right
