FreeBSD ports which depend on ports currently scheduled for deletion

As part of an ongoing effort to reduce the number of problems in
the FreeBSD ports system, we periodically schedule removal of ports
that have been judged to have outlived their usefulness.  Often,
this is due to a better alternative having become available and/or
the cessation of development on the existing port.  In some cases,
ports are marked for removal because they fail to build and install
correctly from their sources, or otherwise fail in operation.

The ports listed in this email are ports that depend on one or more
of the ports that are scheduled to be removed, but are not yet
themselves on the list.  However, once those ports are removed,
these ports will then become broken, and thus the reason for this email.

Affected port:

portname:           devel/p5-File-HStore
deprecated because: 
build errors:       none.

Expiring ports upon which this one depends:

portname:           security/p5-Digest-SHA2
deprecated because: Has numerious known bugs, deprecated in favor of
expiration date:    2007-09-10
build errors:       none.

If you are already aware of the above problem(s), please accept
our apologies and ignore this message.  On the other hand, if you no
longer wish to maintain this port (or ports), please reply with a
message stating that, and accept our thanks for your efforts in the

Thanks for your efforts to help improve FreeBSD.
