OK, so I see this was committed without advance warning (i. e. HEADS-UP
mail here) and without fixing dependent ports - breaking bogofilter
because it cannot satisfy its dependencies any longer.
Please remember to notify the maintainers of dependent ports ahead of
time so they can tell whether the updated library will have to live on
in a separate port or whether dependency lines in their own ports must
be updated. The GSL update falls into the latter category.
GSL 1.4 has these dependent ports according to /usr/ports/INDEX:
These will, unless already happened, need to be updated to require gsl.6.
The bogofilter fix is in PR ports/68741.
