That block at the top has information about the original creator
of the port. If I create a new port for software I want to use on
FreeBSD (but don't want to maintain the port), I'll use
# New ports collection makefile for: $whatever
# Date created: $right_now
# Whom: Roman Neuhauser
MAINTAINER= ports at FreeBSD.org
