I could do it but I don't know how to do it now. In fact, there is 
nothing urgent now. I want to modify the existing wily FreeBSD ports 
for wily-9libs and I don't want to supply a tons of patch files with the 
new one. 

Anyway, I think that the new wily package is lacking of some little 
things like: (Makefile generation ;) and documentations ) before I start 
to build a new ports.

I'm already rewriting a new wily.1 man page. This one is very inspired 
from the wily's user.html... I'm not doing nothing original here. I would 
like to build a man page for every tools in the tools directory too.

I would like to know if you want to put the wily tutorial in the 
wily-9libs. As you know, wily is not very attractive the first time for a 
new user until he discover how powerful wily could be.

I could look at the old tools/win/ as an example to build the 
actual wilytools configure script. 

As I said, there is nothing urgent for me. My last contribution to the 
wily's ports is yet in the FreeBSD Problem Report database and the 
commiters seem to be very busy since the release of the version 5.
