Stumbling block on updating devel/doxygen

Hello all,

As the maintainer of devel/doxygen, I am trying to update the port to 1.8.3. 
But I am running into an error upon it trying to create it's docs.  This appears 
to be due to the version of latex we use from teTeX being too old.

The problem is that it is failing on creating a .dvi version of the manual in 
order to create a .ps version of it.  The creation of the .pdf version of the 
manual appears to be fine, but the creation of the other two appears to be 
specific to the FreeBSD port, and was being done prior to my taking over the port.

What I need to know is if there is actually a demand for the .dvi/.ps versions 
of the doxygen manual.  I have been receiving some help from doxygen's 
developer, but considering that this problem isn't in an unmodified version of 
doxygen, I would prefer to stop supplying the .dvi/.ps files.
