The fldigi build system supports CPU optimizations, but the port does not.  This results in a fldigi running significantly slower than possible.
Run ``make configure'' and view the output
Add an option to enable native optimizations like so:

OPTIONS=        NATIVE_OPT      "Enable Native Optimizations"   off

.include <bsd.port.pre.mk>
.if defined(WITH_NATIVE_OPT)

I performed this with my local copy and the resulting binary runs with significantly less load (I also upated to .12)

Sorry I don't have a patch, but I didn't back up the original Makefile.
