It has nothing to do with the license of the package. That is completely
separate. This has to do with the license of the ebuild itself.
FreeBSD Ports inspired Daniel Robbins to create Portage. The issue that
is our ability to share FreeBSD-specific improvements between ebuilds in
portage and Makefiles in FreeBSD ports.
The issues that are similar for both. Collaboration on FreeBSD-specific
things in sys-freebsd/* would make life easier for both portage ebuild
maintainers and FreeBSD port maintainers.
