Description Rong-En Fan 2006-01-04 05:00:12 UTC
This port installs etc/dict.conf everytime and removes it 
even if this file is changed.

Bump PORTREVISION since package contents are changed.

Port maintainer (dd@FreeBSD.org) is cc'd.

Generated with FreeBSD Port Tools 0.63

Fix: Changes follow Porters' Handbook 7.3 Configuration files.
How-To-Repeat: install textproc/dict, change dict.conf, pkg_delete it.
Then, etc/dict.conf is gone.

Yes, I know that dict.conf is required for dict to work correctly.
So, my change installs both .sample and dict.conf, which the latter is
installed if there is no dict.conf.

your post-install looks good, but dict.conf is in pkg-plist,
so pkg_delete removes it unconditionally.
