I just added this module to the build server, thanks for sending it in!
I did remove your pre-portmake.sh script because it would end up doing
nothing anyway... (the user's home directory in the PBI build
environment is not saved for later). Once the PBI builds here, I will
adjust the script to see if I can find a sample config file for slrn
that is included with the port as the default config so it either "just
works" or tells the user what needs to be modified first.
