Following upgrade of this port from 5.11 to 5.12 the gltext screensaver
would exhaust memory resources and then...
rwpc12 kernel: pid 34420 (gltext), ..., was killed: out of swap space
I contacted the author, Jamie Zawinski, who promptly provided the patch
to hacks/glx/tube.c below.
Fix: The following patch upgrades the port to include the author's patch.
- Makefile --> Bump PORTREVISION
- files/patch-hacks_glx_tube.c --> Added
Installing x11/xscreensaver 5.12 on a Pentium III with 512MB RAM
triggered this problem. I didn't try on a larger system.
