Question on which port is better for COBOL

I have a need to do some COBOL programming at home where I run FreeBSD 
4.8.  I see the ports collection has two options for COBOL compilers: 
tinyCobol and openCobol.  The tinyCobol port has a higher version 
number than openCobol, leading me to believe it is more mature, but 
this is not always the case.

Has anyone any experience with either (or preferably both)?  Which one 
is preferred by users out there?

Thank you for any assistance.
