Description John D. 2021-09-13 18:32:47 UTC
If we search `gpart` utility at `https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi` without specify Manual section (`All Sections`) with search target `FreeBSD *-RELEASE and Ports`, we found `gmap` program manual page. But mostly users need `gpart(8)` as more frequently using program.

Besides, gpart(8) will shadow gpart(1) as it installs in "/usr/local/bin" directory wich is further in $PATH enviroment variable.

Won't it be better to rename `gpart` program in this pakage?

Are you thinking this is referring to biology/gmap?  'Cuz it doesn't install any man pages.

cad/scotch has gmap and gpart, though.
