Might be a good idea if you're willing to put up with it and change to
source distribution in the future (get bootstrap fpc, get sources,
compile/patch and install).
There's also people currently working on Lazarus port, I can contact
them how they feel about this if they think there's anything wrong.
The fpc2 -> fpc renaming is ofcourse a good idea, there's a huge chaos
regarding the fpc port right now.
So to sum it up here's my idea:
1. Make fpc compile from sources (there's patches needed for freeBSD for
2. Put it in as fpc and remove the old ports
If you're willing to undertake this I'd happily give you the
maintainer's flag as my time is more and more limited.
