During my regular portupgrade I found some ports have build
problems with msgfmt (I remember postgresql and wdm).

It tured out I have /usr/X11R6/bin in my path before /usr/local/bin
(can't find why yet, seems it should be other way around),
and there is a msgfmt in that directory, installed by xview
(a dependency of xmahjongg). This version does not have
a -o option, and fails on it.

Renaming of /usr/X11/bin/msgfmt to /usr/X11/bin/msgfmt.old solved
the problem for me, xmahjongg works fine too :)

Now I am not sure who should I inform about this issue. It can make
similar problems to others, I guess. So, I write here :-)

Best regards,
