    textproc/sphinxsearch: return to the pool
    Upstream switched to a commercial license years ago, and so we cannot
    include more recent versions in the ports.  Despite indications on the
    website that they would switch back to GPL, this hasn't happened in
    more than 5 years, so I guess it is never going to happen.  From an
    opensource point of view, this software is essentially abandonware.
    However, given there is an actively developed upstream project, and
    that project does provide FreeBSD binaries, it doesn't feel right to
    deprecate the software entirely.
    (cherry picked from commit 9ed24575353e3e60326d55782fffac2ed90d0e85)
