Actually, 3 doesn't necessarily == source install either, since almost all
"ports" are available as pre-built binaries that you can download and 
install ... its still all considered part of the "Ports Collection" though 
...

Same as with Linux, where you can download either the .rpm or the .srpm, I 
believe?


But, I agree with Robert's list, vs this one, since "Ports" should be 
classified as "With Operating System Distribution" ... try and make it 
more generic, since we don't mention Solaris packages in the above, etc 
...
