thanks for maintaining the redmine port. This is more of a suggestion to
simplify the build and reduce runtime dependencies. Redmine seems to have
removed the dependency on mimemagic for redmine >= 4.0.9, and replaced it with
marcel, a gem that comes with rails: https://www.redmine.org/issues/34969

This means the ports www/redmine4 and www/redmine42 could remove the
misc/rubygem-mimemagic runtime dependencies, also, which would simplify the
build and also save 160+mb in space as it would drop an implicit dependency on
python (as misc/rubygem-mimemagic depends on misc/shared-mime-info which
depends on glib which depends on python).

I gave it a try locally and it seems to work. That said, I don't know if my
usage of redmine ever triggered anything that depends on mimemagic/marcel, but
given the redmine issue mentioned above, this should be safe. Anyways, as said,
this is a suggestion, as nothing per-se is broken here.
