Agreed.  It's not very clear there is still a good rationale for nptl and
nptl_db being separate either.  (Not very clear for libidn either, but it
changes so rarely that nobody cares at all.)

Actually it was mostly because of the original set-up wherein each
individual port could produce a separate add-on tarball for just the
one port, rather than the one big tarball for the whole ports repo.
