My point was why do you need the update, and can't wait until its been
better vetted. The porters do the best they can but can't test everything.

Because it was just released and every combination of system
configuration hasn't been tested, so there is some lag time before it
stabilizes, especially with complicated software.
There in lies the question -- why do you need to compile a port which
was just released? Is it a security thing or is it "I want the latest"
? I'm just curious (and totally uninterested in how this ranks in your
"worse question" list).
