To which Kris Kennaway replied:

	Right, the 'ident' thing.  Doesn't seem to matter.  That
particular error used to happen a lot, but starting a couple of
months ago the ports tree got severely cleaned up.  For a while
I got none of these, now one is back.  It doesn't matter, though.
I fixed up the "fvwm2" Makefile and now "portsdb" runs to
completion.  The "ident" errors are non-fatal warnings.

	Hopefully someone will commit this fix to the tree.
