[clc-devel] Meta ports

Hi there,

Jürgen pointed out possible problems due to the fact that gtk2 is now in
opt: Dependencies are not listed anymore. There are basically two ways
out of this:
- every ports mentions all dependencies of gtk2 itself
- creating a meta port which lists the dependencies of gtk2; this port
  can be listed as dependency then, avoiding the above.

It's pretty obvious that the second one is less error-prone and
therefore our choice :-) Are there any comments or objections?

Regards, Johannes
P.S. an open question is to determine what files this meta port installs
(as pkgmk won't create an empty package); /usr/share/clc/gtk2-meta as an
empty text file? ideas anyone?
