Hi ports,

There seems to be a duplicate in the ports tree:

net-mgmt/wide-dhcp This is the WIDE implementation of DHCP (Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol)
server, relay agent, and client.

net/dhcp6 WIDE-DHCPv6 is an open-source implementation of Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6), originally developed
by the KAME project.

These are both the same implementation albeit a completely different
version. One from when it was a KAME project and one from since it is
a sourceforge project. Since net-mgmt/wide-dhcp is gone, I would
suggest mgmt/wide-dhcp to be removed from the tree and a corresponding
entry in UPDATING.

Kind regards,
