# cd /usr/ports/net/wireshark
/usr/local/lib/ ...

Well, eagle5 does not install the file, thus it
doesn't exist and the ports system will try to install linux-eagle5
when building wireshark. Of course linux-eagle5 is already installed,
thus it will fail.

If I remove linux-eagle5 the dependency works:
/usr/local/lib/ ...

But why does the ports system think linux-eagle installs this library?
# pkg_info -Lx eagle|grep crypto

The file is a symlink and has a distinctively different version
