Description Shane 2020-11-21 10:13:13 UTC
print/fig2dev is configured as conflicting with print/transfig but transfig doesn't have a conflict entry.

These two ports, would appear to be similar projects started by the same person, the first commit for fig2dev (aug 2016) stated that it was planned to replace transfig after some testing.

Each port has a small number of dependants, they install what appears to be the same bin and data files, data is in different paths, is there really a need to keep both or can one replace the other?
