 Do you mean that the port is not maintained (which I know) or that the libffi
 which is part of gcc is not being maintained by the gcc people ?
 
 I though that having libffi as part of gcc meant that it was maintained
 along with gcc and would be installed on any system gcc was on. But I
 can't find a way to get it installed onto FreeBSD 5 at all.
