I'll leave that one to your expert judgement really. mscgen isn't 
required by doxygen all the time; it's only invoked if you use the \msc 
or \mscfile commands in your mark-up. It depends whether you see a 
minimal install as important, or would sooner install more packages but 
get fewer surprises.

If you do add mscgen to doxygen's 'requires' line then please could you 
consider bringing GraphViz over from Ports - doxygen can use 'dot' in 
the same way, so whatever we decide for mscgen should also apply to 

Thanks for uploading,
