apologize for bringing up this so late, I simply forgot it,
but Johannes' blackbox email reminds me ;-)
* I'd suggest to replace core/slocate by mlocate for CRUX 2.5
slocate is maintained by debian, but there's no activity for a
long time, so I'd call it unmaintained.
is a drop-in replacement for slocate maintained by RH, but
much faster in the second run because it merge-in new files
instead of rebuilding all from scratch.  
Unfortunately the switch is not fully painless, because mlocate
needs a new system-group 'mlocate' and cannot co-exist with
slocate because of conflicting file names.
To test mlocate I've added a ports to my private repo .
if you are using the current version of pkgmk you have to download
the source-file by hand, because of a failed certificate check,
pkgmk in git already has a fix for that . A new pkgutils release
for 2.5 would be nice.
