A package for just my two 600 byte scripts would be a bit rediculous.. The
makefile would be larger than the scripts.  ;)  It might not be a bad idea to
put them, and portlint up somewhere, on, along with anything else
people have developed.  They are a bit raw though, no usage docs or anything.. 
So if we wanted to do that, I'd at least want to clean em up. Right now they
just get the job done.  (hopefully correctly)  I used to have one that would
run around your tree and build diffs for you automaticly by looking for .orig's
and ~'s  but I cant remember where I put that one... If there is interest I
could look around.
