Adi, you did the right thing -- that library is missing at the port.
There are two hints.

1. The plist file is not full (one llibrary missing). I'd recommend
   you to test the patches (on probably fresh machine). Then on
   deinstalling you'll notice those files that remain undeletted.
   You may consider reading
   to create a good (i.e. ready-to-commit) patches.

2. To create a good distinfo file for a linux port try to use "make
   PACKAGE_BUILDING=YES makesum". There are may source files (under
   GPL) which we must (at least) have while building linux (GPL)

PS. I've already sent Jeff a patch and he gave me a successful
feedback. I hope this patch will be committed soon.
