There is a problem with the 'make install' of the
/usr/ports/mail/py-spambayes, SpamBayes Version 1.0 
(Release Candidate 1). It cannot install the 'contrib'
directory listed in PORTDOCS.

When running 'make install' I get the following error:

	install  -o root -g wheel -m 444 /usr/ports/mail/py-spambayes/work/spambayes-1.0rc1/WHAT_IS_NEW.txt /usr/local/share/doc/spambayes
	install  -o root -g wheel -m 444 /usr/ports/mail/py-spambayes/work/spambayes-1.0rc1/contrib/ /usr/local/share/doc/spambayes
	install: /usr/ports/mail/py-spambayes/work/spambayes-1.0rc1/contrib/:
	Inappropriate file type or format
	*** Error code 71

	Stop in /usr/ports/mail/py-spambayes.

This is the version I'm using:
$FreeBSD: ports/mail/py-spambayes/Makefile,v 1.7 2004/06/13 22:57:46 lioux Exp $
PORTNAME=       spambayes
PORTVERSION=    1.0.rc.1

cd /usr/ports/mail/py-spambayes
make (works fine)
make install (gives the error mentioned in the description)

Removing the contrib directory from the PORTDOCS variable in the
Makefile fixes the problem, but doesn't install the contrib
directory/files. I don't know the best way it can be fixed.  I'll
leave it for the maintainer to decide ;)
