Hi Nakata Maho,

I don't see a reason why serf registers "Requires.private" in serf-1.pc

Try by removing the "Requires.private" line
 in /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/serf-1.pc

If this is working for you I could commit the following patch.

Even bumping PORTREVISION should be necessary I want to avoid a bump
for this trivial fix since this will force rebuilding openoffice ...
