The optional CONTRIB option to the devel/git port pulls in DocBook as a dependency.
It should be disabled when whatever NOPORTDOCS is named these days indicates that people want to avoid that sort of stuff.

When CONTRIB option is ON a good number of extra dependencies is added
(asciidoc, docbook-xml) but they are only used to build git-subtree
manpage and html doc.
Created a new option SUBTREE to make it possible to install all CONTRIB
code except git-subtree and remove extra dependencies from CONTRIB option
Submitted by: phk@
asciidoc is used to produce git-subtree manpage, what is not considered part of DOCS.
I created this new option to make it easy to have contrib files installed skipping git-subtree, that should help
I believe this is enough to consider issue fixed
This had an impact on devel/git-lite as well. It excludes CONTRIB but not
the new SUBTREE. Is that intended?
