v8 @3.23.15: fetches additional files from svn

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: neverpanic (Clemens Lang)
Port: v8

Description

Although the v8 port has a distfile, it downloads lots of additional code from svn. I already had the distfile but it took over 12 minutes to fetch the additional code, at the crowded coffee shop I'm currently working at, and of course it has to re-fetch anytime I clean and try again. Would be great if these extra dependencies could be satisfied with additional distfiles instead.
