next abort of perl upgrade encountered--linux-pango security problem :-( Scott Bennett Thu Jun 25 00:00:26 2009

     The saga of failures in the perl upgrade continues with the following:

===>   linux-gtk2-2.6.10_3 depends on file: 
/compat/linux/usr/lib/ - not found
===>    Verifying install for /compat/linux/usr/lib/ in 
===>  linux-pango-1.10.2_3 has known vulnerabilities:
=> pango -- integer overflow.
=> Please update your ports tree and try again.

     There doesn't seem to be a more recent version of the
x11-toolkits/linux-pango port available.  What is the best way to proceed?
Will a "portmaster -fv x11-toolkits/linux-pango" do the job for now?  (I'm
not too worried about the security bug for the moment.  Although I use mplayer
to play files, they don't generally involve .png files, and I don't use
mplayer to play streaming files.)
     Please copy me in on responses, otherwise I won't see them till the
next freebsd-ports digest is sent out.  Thanks!
