Normally the maintainers are getting a New Version mail but here the
distribution place has changed from apache to the project site so
the new version was not detected ...

I've done a quick test and it seems at first the official distfile
is not really usable to build packages.

For example in the official source they try to resolve the version via git,
this will work maybe on the dev system but not in clean build environments

+       @MP_GIT_SHA=$$(git describe --always); \
+       echo > version.c ; \
+       echo "/* THIS FILE IS AUTO-GENERATED BY Makefile */" >> version.c ; \
+       echo "#include \"mp_version.h\"" >> version.c ; \
+       echo "const char * const mp_git_sha = \"$${MP_GIT_SHA}\";" >> version.c ; \

Arrrg, even no Changelog entry

+.. _changes:
... old version changes ...

Perhaps the version 3.4.1 could become a testing port but with such issues
I see after the first look no reason to replace 3.3.1 with 3.4.1.
