 Sorry, I was overly busy when this was sent, and didn't reply at
 the time, then just forgot about it.
   | It seems that www/seamonkey-2.53.10 has no direct dependency to Xft
 That was the problem reported.   There wasn't one, but it did not build
 without it installed.   It wasn't needed at run time however.
   | Could you investigate your problem for www/seamonkey-2.53.10?
 This PR is ancient, I have built seamonkey, I suspect several times,
 since - I don't know what the status of Xft2 was on those, but on
 one system I can look at right now (ie: where I am typing this) I
 have seamonkey-2.49.1nb3 installed (I know, a bit old now, and should
 be updated - so should lots of my packages, but...) and don't seem to
 have fonts/Xft2 or x11/libxft so my guess would be that this has been
 fixed, or worked around, or newer NetBSD causes the issue to vanish,
 or who knows.
 In any case, feel free to close that PR - along with any other pkg/*
 PRs of mine from the dark ages.   I used to do a lot of pkg building, and
 submit PRs about the various failures.   But that was a long time ago.
 None of that can possibly still be relevant.   Or at least it does not
 seem likely to me.
