Hi Bryan,

I got your direct message a little while ago - did it also bounce back
to you?  Coincidentally, I have been working on this problem today.

Do you have the textproc/docbook-to-man port installed on your machine?
 I recently changed security/logcheck to use textproc/docbook2X to
convert its SGML man page source into a man page, since its a much
lighter-weight port than docbook-to-man.

However, if docbook-to-man is already installed, it should be used
instead of docbook2X.  I didn't take that into account initially.

I just updated the port, so please refresh your tree and try
reinstalling.  Let me know how that works for you.
