well, decided to give it a spin, seamed to go easier than expected, and
unison 2.9.20 built without error, but when trying....

Fatal error: Received unexpected header from the server:
 expected "U" but received "W".
This is probably because you have different versions of Unison
installed on the client and server machines.

I tried adjusting PORTVERSION to 2.9.1, changing MASTER_SITES in
Makefile and moving distinfo out of the way (I'm not too experienced
with ports). It didn't work

rest of my week is booked, so I'll just keep running rsync until
it doesn't choke...
