Why?  I think the right place is in the ports.

Personally, I never install sudo, so having it in the base
system would be a waste.  I prefer "super" (security/super
in the ports), because it has a cleaner configuration format,
so it's easier to configure securely.

There are lots of ports which would be much more useful in
the base system.  For example, I install sysutils/lsof and
devel/strace on almost every machine.  I'd like to vote for
those two to go into the base system.  :-)
