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.
