If user have a non-modern laptop (non-fast one), I think he will be
happy if he get few packages, which will not built from source = not
spend his time; So if he chose to install one thing from ports, it will
be really one-two thing.
And now it's building a few more - at least for first time.
That's the idea - make button "Install frequently required packages to
comfortly build ports".
