"DO NOT mix versions of Ports and OpenBSD!

"If your system is Release, use the Release version of the ports tree. Don't 
try to use a -Current version of the Ports tree on a -Release or -Stable 
system. Not only is it not likely to work, you will irritate people when you 
ask for help about why 'nothing seems to work!' Note that there is a -Stable 
branch of the Ports tree as well, where critical fixes to -Release ports will 
be made."
