The koffice build is dying with:

../work/.buildlink/lib/ undefined reference to `DrawSetViewbox'
../work/.buildlink/lib/ undefined reference to `DrawScale'
../work/.buildlink/lib/ undefined reference to 

The problem is that recently the ImageMagick package has "successfully" built 
in support for wmf which has the effect of making depend on but packages using libMagick don't know that hence the breakage of 
koffice, transcode and possibly others.

I don't know why the wmf support has only recently been built in as it appears 
that ImageMagick has been trying to include it for a while (there has been a 
libwmf/ in the file for ages).

A recent build of ImageMagick- had this in part in the configure 

checking if WMF package is complete... no
WMF               --with-wmf=yes                no

while a build of ImageMagick- now gives:

checking for WMF support ...
checking libwmf/ipa.h usability... yes
checking libwmf/ipa.h presence... yes
checking for libwmf/ipa.h... yes
checking for wmf_lite_create in -lwmflite... yes
checking if WMF package is complete... yes
WMF               --with-wmf=yes                yes

Adding a "CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --without-wmf" returns to its previous 
behaviour and fixes the koffice and transcode builds but is clearly not what 
is intended.
