Anyway. Attached is the proposed update -- I suspect, the port has not worked
for /very/ long time. It used to overwrite a kdelibs-installed x-pcx mimelnk
and install a useless x-tga, when x-targa was already installed by kdelibs.
This and other pkg-plist problems should all be fixed now. The port will
depend on and use GraphicsMagick instead of ImageMagick. GM's developers
emphasise API-stability, so the port should stop requiring as frequent
updates as it used to. Keeping port's own "private" headers is no longer
Please, approve. Thanks,
