I like to be lean... ??

I usually use porteasy in jails setup to contain a specific application like
just mailman+apache+postfix or some big php+mysql mess.

Using porteasy I don't have to use >2G per jail which is nice, and all
the skeletons of the dependencies are downloaded, so everything just
builds.  All skeletons can be updated in one line also: porteasy -uI
