In pkgsrc-current, the file print/tex-prosper/Makefile contains an URL
to the project's homepage.  Although the URL itself isn't incorrect, the
page shows a message which could trick people into thinking the project
is dead (or something alike).  (The message is: `` We're Sorry but this
Project hasn't yet uploaded their personal webpage yet.''.)
It might be better to provide another URL.
"awk '/HOMEPAGE/ {print $NF}' /usr/pkgsrc/print/tex-prosper/Makefile";
view the page.
Apply the following proposed patch:

$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/print/tex-prosper/; cvs diff -u Makefile

Note: in case the current, `incorrect' URL is mentioned elsewhere (i
couldn't find it though), it might be changed there as well.
