[Mailman-Users] Problem with help2man update

Attempting to do updates tonight, I ran into problems with upgrading
help2man.  I was able to manually update most other ports.  The log for
help2man says:

:info:configure configure: error: perl module Locale::gettext required
:info:configure shell command " cd
&& ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --enable-nls " returned error 1
:error:configure Target org.macports.configure returned: configure failure:
shell command failed (see log for details)
:debug:configure Backtrace: configure failure: shell command failed (see log
for details)

port installed shows (among many others):

gettext @
gettext @ (active)
help2man @1.38.2_0 (active)
p5-locale-gettext @1.05_3 (active)

and port outdated shows:

The following installed ports are outdated:
help2man                       1.38.2_0 < 1.38.4_0
ghostscript                    9.00_4 < 9.01_0
ImageMagick                    6.6.6-3_0 < 6.6.7-8_0

I'm hoping I don't have to go in and hack the port file for the two ports
that are dependent on help2man so that they're looking for 1.38.2_0 instead
of 1.38.4_0.  Any better solutions?
