When I first saw this I thought so too, however a search for "Bruce Force" 
on Google seems to indicate that it's some kind of password cracker. Many 
of the docs I found are in German and as I don't use that language much any 
more, my German reading skills are pretty rusty these days. Given that the 
words are capitalised seems to indicate that it is intended as a name. The 
port's maintainer might possibly enlighten us.
