claws-mail's build dependency on Tex Live

If you build claws-mail from ports you might want to think about
unchecking the manual option. It brings in a build dependency on 
textproc/docbook-utils which in turn depends on print/texlive-texmf.
This has a 1663 MB distfile and installs 1477 MB of files.

Obviously the manual option needs to be on by default, but perhaps
there should be a warning in the port menu. pkg doesn't show build
dependencies, so it's not obvious where texlive came from.
