OK - I have been 'mining' the ports tree and doing installs and tests
for several hours.

I skipped 'Mined' because of this:

Requires: expat-1.95.8, gettext-0.14.1, gmake-3.80_2, libiconv-1.9.2_1

Before I even try it - what are the chances it can run in '/bin' in a 
mode, with only the root slice mounted (no /usr and no libs or other
*NIX utilities that are not on the root slice?).

- can it even load w/o the ELF interpreter in /usr/libexec?

And presuming the answers is 'it cannot' - then could a stripped-down 
do so?

FWIW - next to any editor will run in that environment if one puts 
everything in one slice,
as I do on CF or USB builds.  If '/' is mounted, so are all others.
But that is not common on a production box.
