Since I didn't get a response to this question before, I figured I'd just
call attention to it again. Does anyone know of any reason there
shouldn't be a version of www/flock newer than 1.0.2 in ports?
For reference, the version in ports is still 0.7_7, which seems absurdly
old, considering the Flock project is up to 1.1 now.
