  Tidy up the list of docproj dependencies.  Here comes a long
  This makefile tries to be smart in determining the minimal list
  of ports comprising the docproj meta-port, necessary to build
  the FreeBSD documentation and release notes.
  To get it absolutely right, it would have to generate the list
  at run time, parsing the output of "make all-depends-list" for
  ports/textproc/docproj, supplying the same options like in
  src/release/Makefile, and trying for different platforms and
  FreeBSD versions!
  Besides from the complexity involved, this is just not possible
  to do from here, because the ports tree may be not up-to-date or
  not be available at all -- it's not required to have a checked
  out ports tree to start "make release".  So makefile copies
  some logic from the ports system to try to come up with the
  right list...
  Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible nor practical to come up
  with a proper and complete list from here this way.  Such a
  list would have to support all possible __FreeBSD_version's,
  Perl versions, and so on, and their combinations -- everything
  that the ports system would do.
  The fix is to stop pretending be smart, and only provide
  lists enough to build a docproj port on recent of 4.x, 5.x,
  and 6.x systems, where this is practical.
  What can break with this change is "make release -DNOPORTS" of
  HEAD or RELENG_5, *without* -DNODOC, on older FreeBSD systems
  like 5.1-RELEASE.  The change in the docproj dependency list
  between 5.1 and 5.3 is as follows:
  # diff docports.501000 docports.503000
  < /usr/ports/devel/p5-File-Temp
  < /usr/ports/devel/p5-Test-Harness
  < /usr/ports/devel/p5-Test-Simple
  < /usr/ports/lang/perl5
  > /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
  Since doing "make release" on these old systems is not officially
  supported anyway (only one tiny tweak is necessary to make it
  work), the practical damage of this change is zero.
  Original problem spotted by Scott Long doing "make release
  -DNOPORTS RELEASETAG=RELENG_5".  That particular problem
  was already fixed by the previous change to this file, while
  this change is the result of some additional analyzis of the
  Fix was tested by doing a "make release -DNOPORTS" of HEAD on
  the 4.10-STABLE machine (with one small tweak I mentioned, to
  make it possible).
