Oops :D
neko_dia specifies no dependencies, however, they should look approximately like this:

It also has python bindings that should be in a separate subsystem and should depend on neko_dia.sw.eoe as well as neko_pygtk.

I'd update dia, but then I'd have to build pygtk for the python 2.7.3 that has found its way into /current by now. That needs a newer pygobject (a not current anymore version of which is bundled in neko_pygtk for unknown reasons), which again requires a new glib, which requires libffi (would be in /incoming by now, but the ftp server says "I'm sorry anonymous, I'm afraid I can't do that."), and the new glib requires constructor and destructor support. I have no Idea how that's supposed to work with c99. At least fec_360 seems to have constructor support, and I can use that with -Zf,_360, but it still just produces errors.

If anyone wants to update the dia package, below are file type rules and icons for dia and .dia files.
I would suggest, in view of the huge amount of problems with this tardist, that it be put into the round file ? That could save some unsuspecting passerby from wasting his time installing this. It would be just as easy for someone in the future to start from scratch.

Let me know when it does that so I can restart FTP. If you just sit on it and hope it magically corrects itself it may stay that way a long while (until I eventually stumble on it myself, who knows when).

anon ftp is working now, neko_libffi-3.0.11.tardist is in /incoming. Will contact you the next time I stumble upon this or similar problems.
