    initial v1  
    55Generally, your explanation in your first paragraph probably belongs in the Guide.  The portfile recipes and perhaps many parts of the wiki could go in the Guide.

    7 Alpine specific, since you are cleaning up some depends_libs, the only depends_lib necessary is openssl, at least on my 10.9 system.  In fact, because the upstream code does not conditionally code around it, the --without-ssl option (and variant) is useless, and probably no one has tried and complained.  The libs iconv and ncurses are already provided by OS X; if not on older systems, they could be conditional, but probably a minor point here.  Alpine builds on my system without gettext, but also probably a minor point.

    99When or why did the without_tcl variant become obsolete?  Do you mean because MP implicitly has Tcl that the variant is obsolete?  Your comment in the portfile is unclear.
