Ok - fair enough.  I just wanted to make the point, for other readers,
that submitting a non-compilable port is not acceptable.

No, a compiling-but-not-producing-working-executables port is OK.  For
now anyway.  It would not be OK if you were not intending to finish
off the port and make it work.  But you have already indicated that
you are working to complete the port.

It is up to you.  If submitting the port piecemeal is easier for you,
then please do so.
