The listing gives nice overview of missing package descriptions 
throughout the whole tree. I used it to add descriptions for at least 
some of them, but there are many more missing and I don't even know 
what they would be about in some cases.

One particular case is libogcfpc. This one is supposed to be built 
for all targets according to its fpmake.pp, although I strongly 
suspect that it doesn't make too much sense. The original 
Makefile.fpc.fpcmake seems to suggest that it was meant for powerpc-
wii only - can someone have a look at it, please?
