Using >= to check for minimum versions.

Hey guys,

Using the minimum version checking is not working for me.

using :
LIB_DEPENDS=	usb-0.1.8:${PORTSDIR}/devel/libusb

but using the following construct as section 5.7.9 of the porters
handbook suggests
#LIB_DEPENDS=	usb>=0.1.8:${PORTSDIR}/devel/libusb

errors out with:
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
===>  Extracting for libnjb-2.2.5
=> MD5 Checksum OK for libnjb-2.2.5.tar.gz.
=> SHA256 Checksum OK for libnjb-2.2.5.tar.gz.
===>  Patching for libnjb-2.2.5
Syntax error: redirection unexpected
*** Error code 2

Thanks for any help.
