This port would be exceptionally well served by the optional dependencies
code that Jeremy Lea has been working on. See -ports for more details.

Actually, this reminds me.. the USE_NEWGCC macro in bsd.port.mk is now
out of date, it needs to be altered to < 400012 which was when
gcc-2.95.2 became the default -current compiler (rev 1.56 of sys/sys/param.h)
There's a few ports out there that have hacks to use the right gcc that
can be removed now we can get the same compiler on both -stable and
-current. textproc/aspell springs to mind :)
