There appear to be a couple of extraneous dependencies set for this
package.  According to the my quick scan of the
site, the tcsh is not on their list of required software, I only
saw mention of csh.  Is it possible to remove that dependency, or
is our csh really deficient in some critical way?

Second, while the misc/openoffice package does the right thing for
detecting whether lang/gcc needs to be a dependency, devel/stlport
does not. I just saw PR pkg/15620 filed for this problem. Allow me
to second that as a fix for permitting -current systems to build
without installing a second copy of the base system compiler.
