 Please keep-it broken, caudium-devel is not yet usable... The current=20
 one depends of pike 7.6, but it is too hardly broken to be added on=20
 FreeBSD ports.
 What should I do :
 - ask for removing caudium-devel ? and when it is finaly usable, then=20
 create a new
    port ?
 - keep it broken for a while ?

 caudium12 will ever depend of pike72 (it cannot work with pike 7.4 or=20
 caudium10 will also ever depend of pike70 (it cannot work with pike=20
 7.2, 7.4 or 7.6)
 I know it is strange that a language is not compatible with himself...=20=
 but this is pike world !
