To:  hrs (acroread),
ports (cc: recipient for these ports),
freebsd-emulation (linux-pango),

I tried to "make install" for acroread9 and it failed with the messages 
that follow in the "ps" below.  Acroread9 depends on 
"linux-pango-1.10.2_3" and others.  Linux-pango did not "make" because 
of a defect. The messages include the URL:

This link says that a defect is in all:
pango < 1.24
linux-pango < 1.24
linux-f8-pango < 1.24
linux-f10-pango < 1.24

I updated the ports tree, but the Make file still refers to:
In addition, looking for "linux-pango" in the ports collection on shows only linux-pango version 1.10.2_3.

So how do I get linux-pango 1.24, or later??  And if so, will acroread9 
"make install" successfully?

I looked at the "pango" web site:
and found that there are source versions of "pango" up to 1.26.

It seems there is a need to upgrade all of the "pango" ports to 1.24 or 
later, and the make files for all the ports that use it, and perhaps 
some other aspects of those ports as well.  I do not have the skills to 
do this.  I am hoping that you can help.

Best regards,
