having textproc/p5-XML-Parser installed, it is always shown as outdated
by the new out-of-date script. It wants to be use expat.5.0 instead of
The reason for this is that textproc/expat contains libexpat.4.0, while
the base system's X11 has /usr/X11R6/lib/libexpat.so.5.0.
This looks weird to me, but I don't understand all the implications well
enough to really propose a solution ... maybe bump the port's .so number
so it's always ahead of base? Leave-as-is-because-it's-ok and teach
out-of-date about special cases like this?
Maybe TPTB have a better idea, so I'll just drop this notice here.
Hope it helps,
