yes, the reason is that I need Plone 2.1.1 which in turn requires PIL
1.1.5, not 1.1.4 which is in ports. In most cases, when the updated
package is mostly reflected in new version numbers in the Makefile, and
a new distinfo, this is not a problem.

By this I meant that I installed the xbase38.tgz, xetc38.tgz and
xshare38.tgz which I normally don't install. Unfortunately, the PIL port
can't easily be built w/o tk which in turn requires X11.
