Why Poroy?

The train from Cuzco to Machupicchu passes here, distance 8 km from Cuzco.
I don´t know anything about this village, it looks like a suburban to Cuzco.
When Francisco Pizarro was in Cusco he went out one day (I don´t recall for what mission). When he after some time got to this place he said tired:
- Basta por hoy!
(Which of course in English would bee 'Enough for today!)
This changed till 'por hoy' and then to 'Poroy'.
