By the way, similar problem in textproc/dict-client. It depends on a lib
named libmaa, which seemingly only gets built for dict itself. When
configuring for it it stumbles into the same error. A solution is to go
work/dictd-1.4.9 and run ./configure and gmake there from hand. Then you
can't install the package from textproc/dict-client though, because a make
install starts triggering configure again .. of course a gmake install works
fine in textproc/dict-client/work/dictd-1.4.9 but that's skipping package
entries in the pkg db.
