I'm getting at a dead end here, having spent a considerable amount of time
to learn about send-pr. I'm also at the brink of dropping the whole thing.
Simply telling that the molden port is broken and even provide a patch,
shoud not become a full day job :(.

So, please, with sugar on top, could someone, more experienced, take it
form here. This is the bounced back email from gnats:
(why can I send emails to the whole world, but does gnats bounce it back?)

	Molden port has three major problems:

1) Change the MD5 checksum in the molden port
     MD5 (molden3.9.tar.Z) = 66061c5187193b0a11be548d0da3e2bc
     MD5 (molden3.9.tar.Z) = b6ad8507344c5726e9ec371ea06a6a5b

2) Add dependency on Mesa3 port to the molden port:
    # cd /usr/ports/biology/molden
    # make
    oglmol.c:21: GL/glut.h: No such file or directory
    *** Error code 1
    Stop in /usr/ports/biology/molden.

3) Having 1) and 2) fixed in my own port, 'portinstall molden' still ends with error:

	Simply try to install the port!
