FreeBSD port monitoring revised

Some time ago I wrote simple script to monitor installed ports on FreeBSD machine (original post http://nhw.pl/wp/2006/06/13/monitoring-freebsds-ports/). It works quite well and shows me what is happening on some machines which are manage not only by me. And leaves some trace after handy portupgrade -a command ;-))

But when many ports are upgraded at once output from this script becomes mess and it is hard to read what was added/removed and upgraded. Well it happens when change relates to two ports, neighbours in alphabetical sequence. Diff output with my modifiers becomes unacceptable. So I rewrote it and yes, it is now in Ruby.
