    14     <para>A <filename>Portfile</filename> is a TCL script that often contains
    15     only simple keyword/value combinations defined in MacPorts base, though it
    16     may also contain arbitrary TCL code. Every MacPorts port has a
    17     corresponding <filename>Portfile</filename>, but Portfiles do not
    18     completely define a port's installation behavior since the MacPorts base
    19     has default port installation characteristics coded within it that are
    20     applied to all ports. Therefore Portfiles need only specify required
    21     options and, when required, non-default characteristics for a port.</para>
