Thanks for your interest in the ports collection which has already a lot
of great applications, and it could have even one more ... but we would
need to find a volunteer who is interested in getting that software into
the tree, and who knows how to port that software.

Re-reading my last paragraph I come to the conclusion that _you_ are the
ideal candidate. Seriously, here a lot of busy people, and every help
is gratefully accepted.

All you have to do is read through the Porters' Handbook[1] (at least
the `Quick Porting' chapter) and choose one of the 9000+ examples in your
ports collection as a start. Of course, the mailing list will assist you
if you are stuck.
