 > So you are basically saying to add db46 and xerces2.8 to the "distfiles"
 section (or which ever versions will be required), right?
 > The both packages will then be downloaded and compiled twice. Ok, this
 shouldn't be a big deal e.g. regarding disk usage. But would you also
 suggest to have them installed in the non standard location/folder, so
 that they will not get into conflict when the standard "db46" and xercres
 ports are getting installed regularly?

 To be a little more precise: the dependent libraries are already included
 in the src-tgz. So no need to add them to the distfiles.

 The dependent libraries could be put in a different folder (e.g.
 ${prefix}/share/dbxml/{bdb,xerces,xqilla}) rather than the standard folder
 in order to prevent conflicts?
