    662662    necessary. All the keywords are to be used within the global section of a
    663     Portfile. The keywords listed below in category "global" specify
    664     information for a port as a whole, whereas the keywords listed under a
    665     port phase specify information to be used during execution of a port's
    666     corresponding phase.</para>

    668     <para>Remember that MacPorts port phases are often implicit, meaning that
    669     Portfile phases need not be defined in a <filename>Portfile</filename>.
    670     Nevertheless, keywords may be used to effect behavior of a port's
    671     installation phases that are implicit, as well as explicitly defined (when
    672     augmenting or overriding the default port phases).</para>

     664    "global" specify information for a port as a whole, whereas the keywords
     665    listed under a port phase specify information to be used during a
     666    particular installation phase.</para>

     668    <para>Remember that default port installation phase behavior is performed
     669    by the MacPorts base, so that <filename>Portfile</filename> phase
     670    declarations need only be defined for non-default behavior. But keywords
     671    for port phases affect installation phase behavior, whether it is
     672    performed by the MacPorts base code or defined using
     673    <filename>Portfile</filename> phase declarations.</para>
