I found a few things, but having this in the porters handbook is good.

1336 ↗(On Diff #68756)

The indentation here is wrong. The <sect2 needs to be aligned below the </sect2> above (with an empty line in between).

1342 ↗(On Diff #68756)

I think the space here before the / is not necessary.

1374 ↗(On Diff #68756)

Is the / here before the </screen> really part of the output?

1394 ↗(On Diff #68756)

avoid the use of "we". Instead, simply write: "Once done, a list of files required dependencies can be generated:"

1403 ↗(On Diff #68756)

You can enclose the .cabal in <filename> tags.

1406 ↗(On Diff #68756)

Remove the "we can" here: "..., run the following command:"

1414 ↗(On Diff #68756)

Enclose the _ in <literal> tags.

7213 ↗(On Diff #68756)

This seems like to break the line too early. You can fill it up until 70 - 75 characters per line.

256 ↗(On Diff #68756)

s/provides following/provides the following/

265 ↗(On Diff #68756)

Enclose them in <literal> or <varname> tags and put the 0.1.2 in <replaceable> tags.

267 ↗(On Diff #68756)

wrap the _ in <literal> and put a "the" before it: "the _ symbol."

277 ↗(On Diff #68756)

program is superfluous, as the <command> tags show what it is.

277 ↗(On Diff #68756)

s/during configuring/during the configuring/

323 ↗(On Diff #68756)

superfluous option (change the <literal> to <option> to make it clear).

Yes, it is. I can remove it, if it gets in the way.

Bump. Can we get this in?

Could you ask on the freebsd-ports@ mailing list for a final round of reviews? This looks like a nice addition to the PH. Let's see if the community has any feedback on that.

@bcr, is the DocBook part alright?

@mat, should we wait for your review?

1341 ↗(On Diff #68791)

How about s/define/defines ?

The DocBook parts look good to me.

Unless haskell@ is happy to have extra ports dropped on them!
