When portmaster was running on the long list of ports and got to gnash,
I saw a message about libxul being reinstalled, then it couldn't install
libxul19 because of conflict, also vulnerability of libxul19.

I ran pkg info -l, and there was no file exactly named xpidl, though there
were a lot of files with idl in the name, especially ending in .idl .

I've never run send-pr before and don't have sendmail set up but once used
the WWW send-pr interface, though that was for NetBSD.

I guess 
setenv MAIL_AGENT /usr/local/bin/msmtp -a insight -t  
(but this failed because of too many arguments)
since I would sent a message by
msmtp -a insight -t < message-file
though this message file includes headers.

I tried send-pr and at the end got "Message sent" though I don't know if it
really found its way without the mail agent being set up.

I notice x11/yelp also has a dependency libxul19 but don't know if that is for 
file xpidl.  This port would be helpful with gnumeric.
