System: FreeBSD empiric.icir.org 5.3-BETA7 FreeBSD 5.3-BETA7 #3: Tue Oct 5 20:46:12 PDT 2004 bms at empiric.icir.org:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/EMPIRIC i386

	The x11/dgs port is marked as IGNORE. The makefile contains
	the following lines:

	.if ${X_WINDOW_SYSTEM:L} != xfree86-3
	IGNORE=         "is included in XFree86 4.x and above"

	This is in fact incorrect. XFree86 4.x and X.org 6.x only contain
	the client side Display PostScript environment. They do *NOT*
	contain the server components; this port does.

	The real fix is to patch the port such that only the server
	components (i.e. dpsnx.agent and friends) are installed and
	packaged when the client components are already installed in
	the system.
