Ticket #16491 (closed defect: fixed)
base/src/port/port.tcl should quote homepage when opening it

In the code for handling the gohome command, the $homepage variable is not quoted when passed to the shell, which causes issues when a character handled by the shell is present in the homepage. To see this, try port gohome xdvipdfmx and note that the page loaded has everything from the & to the end stripped. To see a more catastrophic error, try port gohome libksba (at least until that port's homepage is corrected).
