The latter is not an option.

"special" ... license.  We (the project) need to change the following
things on the latter ones:

 - The ports should be marked RESTRICTED;
 - The MASTER_SITES should be blank;
 - IGNORE needs to be set using similiar technology as in e.g. databases/msql

Udo, please let us (portmgr@) know if this is something that you can take
care of in a timely fashion, otherwise, we will look at it ourselves.

To reiterate: the project cannot be in a position to ignore copyright
and redistribution terms that software authors impose, no matter what
our own feelings about those terms or the pre-existing status quo.
