Hooray!  Thank you!

Just one question: have the inconsistencies been worked out in
translating XFree86 fonts package dependencies to Xorg fonts packages?
Have all ports that depend on XFree86 fonts packages been adjusted, and
if so, how was this issue resolved?

The problem I've seen is that there's some overlap between font package
contents going from XFree86 to Xorg, mainly re: TrueType and Type1

Don't mean to sound like Mr. Rain-On-Your-Parade or anything here.  :-)
If these problems still need some work, I certainly understand.  Just
wondering what the current status is.

Thanks again!
