When we now have a CMake buildsystem we can get rid of "port-thinking". We
can switch to "has-feature-thinking".
You should check for different features instead of doing sth for a spezial
E.g. ICU is used in more than one port: If you check for ICU you only need
to define the ICU stuff once and the different ports can use it.
An other example is the win32 an wince port, where many files are shared:
You would create a port-file for win32 and wince then a general windows
Only one port file isn't applicable everywhere.
