 Please resurrect this PR.  It seems that, despite what I was led to
 believe, FreeBSD doesn't actually have a system for handling automatic
 dependencies.  This topic is now covered in the FreeBSD Porter's Handbook
 under "Problems Caused by Automatic Dependencies":
 The print/libgnomeprint Makefile hasn't changed since before this PR was
 opened, so the patch I submitted can be committed without modification.
 My thanks to everybody who gave me feedback regarding this issue,
 especially the FreeBSD Ports Management Team and Warren Block.
