It sounds like a good idea. It would be nice to have a supplement to
sites like freshports that would be about the port from a commonplace
viewpoint. It took me a while to figure out you need to install php#
extensions from their individual port directory rather then try to
enable the option from php#-extensions. Also, I know that make
option has been around for a little while now, but not many port
maintainers seem to use it.
