What's the exact problem in the size of the collection?

Open task is to work on this directory - as the name WIP suggests is.

There are packages in the following categories:
 - ready to be imported to pkgsrc -- these ones should be deported to pkgsrc
 - packages that have no longer accessible distfiles -- to be neutralized,
 - packages unfinished -- to be finished.

I can see there also two types of entries:
 - rolling release ones, tracking upstream sources,
 - not applicable for pkgsrc.

Legacy GCC versions match the latest type.
