Description Georgi Georgiev 2005-09-12 17:11:42 UTC
net-mail/dot-forward currently has a dependency on sys-apps/groff that it
doesn't really need.

The current ebuild calls "make it"

The Makefile dependencies for "it" are "prog" and "man".

"prog" compiles the program
"man" generates a dot-forward.0 plain-text file out of a dot-forward.1 manpage
and requires nroff. dot-forward.1 is distributed with the tarball.

The dot-forward.0 file is discarded on install.

Therefore, if the ebuild is modified to call "make prog" instead of "make it"
the groff dependency would go away without any side effects.
