It works great. Thank you!
One thing which is not fully clear for me: EasyPBI does use /usr/ports
per default, if this tree doesn't exist, it have a possibility to
fetch ports to user's home directory. Also, when I'm using system
configuration option - "fetch system port tree", system does perform
"portsnap fetch", but does not "portsnap extract" or "... update". Is
that correct?
I'm asking, because I've built claws-mail PBI from /usr/ports/ and
noticed that its version is 3.71, comparing to 3.8.0 which is
available in official PBI repository. Then I was trying to perform
"portsnap fetch; portsnap update", but it said I have to do portsnap
extract first.
If I'm not wrong - is it a expected behavior of system configuration
option (fetch system port tree), to fetch but not to extract?

Best regards / Pozdrawiam
