Re: System Kernel and Ports.

I suppose these two items are related because a config file somewhere
identifies that the kernel as FreeBSD 7:

1.  Although the System Manager correctly reports that the operating
system is PCBSD 8.0 Alpha, deeper into System Manager -> System
Settings -> Tasks, it reports that the kernel is "FBSD7.0-PCBSD7.0
(Standard PCBSD Kernel for 7.0"

2.  If you run "portsnap fetch extract update" within the port-console
it retrieves the ports tree, but it appears to be FreeBSD 7's port
tree.  It is also very bi-polar since you can find that Opera is at
release 10 (the newest) while Firefox is only at version 2.x (not so
