There is currently a problem with the responsiveness e.g. of X apps when
the disk load is very high. It seems the scheduling needs some tweaking,
but noone did that yet.

The way is to copy the existing port from /usr/ports to /usr/dfports
into the same subdirectory, change the bsd.port.mk include to
bsd.dfport.mk (similiar for bsd.port.post/pre.mk). Afterwards just add
the necessary patch to files/ and send the port as tarball to submit@.
