Hi Bryan,

Ok, I think the FreeBSD mail server has implemented greylisting, so
that's probably why there was a delivery delay.

By any chance do you have the textproc/docbook-4.1 port installed?
That's the actual port that conflicts with docbook2X, but docbook-to-man
typically has it as a dependency.  If you don't, then I need to do a
little more troubleshooting.

I didn't bump the PORTREVISION on the port, but check the header of the
Makefile.  If it's version 1.26, then you have the latest one.  I always
update my ports trees with portsnap, and updates are generated within an
hour or so, I think.
