 I think so too... Michael, can you, please, submit a patch updating the
 existing port with better instructions for finding the distfile(s)?
 However, my attempts to get this new port to work uncovered the problem
 reported by Jean-Yves back _in June_. The gdk-pixbuf.loaders and the
 pango.modules installed by linux-gtk2 are empty:
 This renders the installed ports inoperable (gtk can't load any images,
 for example). On Sep 2 the PRs entered the never-never "feedback" state
 to get maintainer's approval. A month later, the ports should be fixed
 by someone else (portmgr?) due to maintainer's timeout.
