===>  p5-XML-LibXML-1.56 is marked as broken: Does not compile on 
FreeBSD 501000.

I attempted to locate the error in the bento logs but the log file's 
gone so I'm not entirely sure why it's broken but  when I remove the 
broken marking from Makefile it compiles however I get the following 
warnings under both FreeBSD and NetBSD:

LibXML.xs:73: warning: duplicate `extern'
LibXML.xs:74: warning: duplicate `extern'
LibXML.xs:76: warning: duplicate `extern'
LibXML.xs:77: warning: duplicate `extern'
LibXML.xs:78: warning: duplicate `extern'
LibXML.xs:79: warning: duplicate `extern'

Is this the reason it was marked as broken?

The following patch removes them:

FWIW I contacted the perl package maintainer some time ago and got no 
response.  The cvs log for the port indicates that the port maintainer 
was contacted.  Can this patch be put in place to unbreak the port 
until such a time as someone comes up with a better fix?
