I am the Product Manager for Sleepycat Software and I was very pleased to see the addition of Berkeley DB XML 1.2.1 to the ports tree. Thank you for the work. I do have one request. As it turns out, there is a project called dbXML (http://www.dbxml.org/). The FreeBSD ports have that project as /usr/ports/databases/dbxml. We have spoken with the dbXML team and agreed to use the name 'bdb-xml' rather than 'dbxml'. My request is that our port be named in that way so as not to cause confusion between the two similar but distinct products.
regards, and thank you again,
just take a look in the ports/databases directory
rename the port
