FreeBSD drjekyll.mukappabeta.net 5.3-STABLE FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE #3: Sun Nov  7 14:43:14 CET 2004     root at drjekyll.mukappabeta.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/DRJEKYLL  i386

      [I've just cvsuped the ports tree to verify the problem still exists (Tue Nov  9 02:52:01 CET 2004).]

The x11-toolkits/Xaw3d port installs libXaw3d.so.8 but the rest of the ports
tree apparently requires libXaw3d.so.7.  This results in the failure of ports
that depend on Xaw3d, such as emacs.
Attempting pkg_delete on Xaw3d shows the symptom:
pkg_delete: file '/usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw3d.so.7' doesn't really exist
Apparently, the ports system wants libXaw3d.so.XAWVER (where XAWVER is defined in
bsd.port.mk to be 7) but the Xaw3d port installs it only with the .8 suffix.

      Install x11-toolkits/Xaw3d as of:
# $FreeBSD: ports/x11-toolkits/Xaw3d/Makefile,v 1.41 2004/09/03 20:43:04 nork Exp $

      Symlink libXaw3d.so.8 to libXaw3d.so.7.
