Install and run HaikuPorter

You're required to run a Haiku nightly image for this task.

Haiku uses HaikuDepot as its package manager, but this requires packages and a way to build these packages. We use the tool HaikuPorter to to do this by telling it to read 'recipe' files that contain all the instructions needed to successfully build the package for Haiku. These recipes files can be found in a database called HaikuPorts, which it hosted on GitHub.

Head over to the wiki on the HaikuPorts website and go to the section "Install and run HaikuPorter" and follow the instructions on how to install HaikuPorter and the HaikuPorts database. Edit your haikuports.conf file to put your username in as the packager, for email address put your username "@gci.test".

When you are done, check that haikuporter is working fine by building a simple recipe ("which" is a good choice). This will allow you to make sure everything is configured properly and working as expected. Provide a copy of the build log (haikuporter output to terminal) and/or a screenshot of the package (it is created in the packages/ folder in your haikuports directory) so we can check you completed the work.
