Sorry, seems we're a little bit short on manpower... :(

Anything. :-)

I've had a look on the PR, and it doesn't seem to follow the "common"
struure of pkgs by putting everything into $PREFIX/tnt instead of
$PREFIX/{bin,share/tnt,share/doc/tnt, ...}. Can you rework this, please?
(Ree-submitting the PR with a new number and noting that it
supercedes 7155 would be easierst). Thanks! 

For category "ham", I'd like to see at the very least a second package to
fit there, else I'd put it into pkgsrc/net.
