I'm having problems building this, it dpoesn't see it's own defintion for symbol
avahi_init_i18n (it's defined it it's own code but I guess not linked in).  I
went and googled it, it's apparently been spotted as a problem with all
avahi-gtk versions at 6.22.2 and earlier, and it seems that our port is at
6.22.1.  it was fixed for sure in .4.  Myu problem is, I can't for the life of
me see where the damn minor version is set.  All i can see is,  it's set to
6.22, and no hint of a trailing .1.

So, either, if anyone knows what the fix is, OR if anyone knows where the minor
is being set, I'd be happy enough.

You know, just as an aside, one of my problems with today's ports are the huge
reliance on sub-makefiles.  It nearly always makes things more difficult to
trace out errors.  Yes, it's more elegant, but I just don't believe that selling
out for elegance is a good idea; I would rather have it easier to see and fix,
that just seems so obvious to me.

Don't get me wrong, I very much like things like bsd.port.mk, it's things like
hiding the names, version numbers, things like that about the ports that I
dislike, like the bsd.gnome.mk, and all the masterdirs.  I just personally don't
see the gain it making references unobvious.
