Description Kevin Zheng 2013-03-02 20:50:00 UTC
The port misc/instant-server is quite old and isn't particularly useful in new server installations. This patch attempts to address this problem.

 - Trim Makefile header
 - Use OptionsNG to let users pick what ports they want (security, flexibility)
 - Update reference to isc-dhcpd42-server
 - Update COMMENT and pkg-descr
 - Add new ports and take out others
 - Set myself as the new maintainer.

If the committer feels that these changes are too drastic, he/she should re-add all of the old ports and set them in OPTIONS_DEFAULT to mimic old behavior.

Fix: Apply the attached patch, with changes if deemed appropriate.
