You only need Dragonfly-supfile (which grabs the dragonfly source) and
FreeBSD-ports-supfile (which grabs freebsd's ports system, which is kind
of a hack on dragonfly for the time being, while the low-level hooks
needed for dragonfly's package management system are being
implemented).  They grab two completely different things into different
directories under /usr, and thus can both have the same prefix.  

As an example (and hopefully this doesn't confuse things further), if
you were using FreeBSD you would use FreeBSD-standard-supfile to grab
the source, and FreeBSD-ports-supfile to grab ports.  Since you're NOT
using FreeBSD, rather DragonFlyBSD, you want to grab the DragonFly
source, which Dragonfly-supfile does for you.

Hopefully that clears things up.
