Description Philipp Mergenthaler 2004-01-26 14:40:12 UTC
ports/games/xscorch tries to read its man page and use it as source
for online help texts.  This doesn't work when the man page is installed
compressed, as it is now.

Fix: Install the man page uncompressed:

How-To-Repeat: Install and start xscorch, open one of the configuration dialogs and
position the cursor over a text field or a radio button.
The window that now pops open displays the error message
"Cannot open help file /usr/X11R6/man/man6/xscorch.6."
