While performing a portinstall of shared-mime-info-0.80, the following errors
ensue, indicating a possible/probably missing dependency:

checking dependency style of cc... gcc3
checking for an ANSI C-conforming const... yes

===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please run the gnomelogalyzer, available from
"http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/gnomelogalyzer.sh", which will diagnose the
problem and suggest a solution. If - and only if - the gnomelogalyzer cannot
solve the problem, report the build failure to the FreeBSD GNOME team at
gnome at FreeBSD.org, and attach (a)
"/usr/ports/misc/shared-mime-info/work/shared-mime-info-0.80/config.log", (b)
the output of the failed make command, and (c) the gnomelogalyzer output.
Also, it might be a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed
on your system (i.e. an `ls /var/db/pkg`). Put your attachment up on any
website, copy-and-paste into http://freebsd-gnome.pastebin.com, or use
send-pr(1) with the attachment. Try to avoid sending any attachments to the
mailing list (gnome at FreeBSD.org), because attachments sent to FreeBSD mailing
lists are usually discarded by the mailing list software.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/misc/shared-mime-info.
** Command failed [exit code 1]: /usr/bin/script -qa /tmp/portupgrade20101219-1504-bj3muk-0 env UPGRADE_TOOL=portupgrade UPGRADE_PORT=shared-mime-info-0.71_1 UPGRADE_PORT_VER=0.71_1 make
** Fix the problem and try again.


Don't install the XML::Parser perl module but then _do_ try to portinstall
or portupgrade shared-mime-info-0.80.


Add the obviously missing dependency.
